Well that's why he is back peddling like a circus monkey. I think I heard him say yesterday that the plan for Mass. was good for Mass. only. Not for the country as a whole.
In the end, I would rather see programs that were directed towards helping these people, (who obviously need help) learn to support themselves through hard honest work rather than programs that teach them to work the system to the highest benefit.
I bust my ass for what I earn and it makes me very frustrated when I may be having a stress because of lack of funds and , and then here is person x that has money to pay bills, buy food and the lot, that does not contribute to the solution, but rather perpetuates the problem by exploiting these programs for their lifelong benefit.
This is getting old. Damn the fact that there is not the possibility in this situation that "we could agree to disagree".
