… I Agree — You should Show IDs for Food Stamp use [#US House]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,November 27th,2016

.. it seems that the guts that Maine Governor Paul LePage has showed is spreading down to Washington , D.C. …

.. somehow , LePage was re – elected Governor of Maine . He was elected in the first place in a four – way race . Now , he was re – elected in a three – way race . Part of that is the guts and leadership that LePage has showed on issues such as this one — IDs for food stamp use ..

.. [h/t — TomFernandezBlog.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. the relevant Fed law and Department of Agriculture regs allow it . However , the ObamaCraps keep waiving the requirements to do so . LePage has dropped the hammer in Maine to enforce the requirement ….

.. Hell , you have to show I.D. [several times] to get any kind of public benefits , for God ‘ s Sake . People do have that kind of I.D. . So , what is the damn problem ? …

.. politics and philosophy , what else , especially with the ObamaCraps . They just do not want it , period …

— Note — I am on Medicaid . Before now , I had the choice to choose to want Medicaid . Now , with ObamaCrapCare , you get it whether you like it or not [if you are at a certain income threshold , or below] . That I hate ….

.. I have had to show ID . Lots of times . I still have my driver ‘ s license , at least for another year and a half . Ditto for my U.S. Passport . I also have my public transit Paratransit I.D. , whcich is also acceptable  as a form of Id …

… You Have to be KIdding [#food stamps][#luxury assets]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 28th,2016

.. we once had good welfare reform law ..

.. unfortunately , we now have the Age of Obama . Even the states , yes , even the GOP – led states , are taking off on monkeyshines of food stamp eligibility and waivers …

.. what they should be doing is using strict asset tests . My home state [Ohio] does so , and they do not kid around . Most other states do , unfortunately , and the food stamp rolls have exploded nationally as a result ..

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. we could reform welfare , once again , get people who do not need it off of the damn rolls , and boost the benefit to a somewhat higher level … the hitch ? — we need to get the First Wuss out of office . The sooner he is gone , the better we can get rid of budgetary and immoral crap such as this …

.. Michigan is a case in point . Sure , they wanted the added money . But the ObamaCraps forced them to play by their rules , not Michigan ‘ s . So the asset tests were waived for several years . However , it did not last for long . There were several thousand [yes , THOUSAND] tales of people [such as lottery winners , for example] still getting food stamps and welfare benefits even after winning lottery prizes . No , I am not talking about small change , either . Try $10,000 on up , to say the least …

.. Maine was another example . Even Maine , under the conservative GOPer Paul lePage , took the added money . Then the tales of people with luxury cars , motor homes , vacation homes , and those folks were still getting benefits . So , after his re – election , LePage had had enough . He called the ObamaCraps ‘ bluff , and won . He reimposed strict asset tests [at a level of $5,000 per person] to cull the monkeyshines . It still happens , though , but nowhere near as much …

… There is Good Reason [#Immigrants as a ” Public Charge”]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 7th,2016

.. it is quite simple ..

.. it has been our tradition in this country that immigrants not be allowed to be on the public ” dole . ” …

.. it is still largely the case . Even though some of the states have found loopholes to go around the rules …

.. [h/t — RedAlertPolitics.com]..
.. [link] to the blog news // Google “hangout” …

.. especially illegals . Yes , I still use the term . They are here in this country illegally , and should be sent packing . Then , you can greatly expand the amount of legal immigration [skills and abilities bases] …

.. you really do not want illegals on the ” public dole . ” Then you will really have the mother of all illegal immigration problems , one that dwarfs the ones that we have now …

… These folks are Illegals [#fresh arrivals]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,July 17th,2014

.. and they are shopping at a WalMart in North Carolina with E.B.T. cards …

.. those E.B.T. cards are public benefit cards . Depending on the state , they can be just for food stamps , or they can contain welfare benefits ….

.. [h/t — theGatewayPundit]..
.. [link] to the video segment …

.. given the antics of the ObamaCraps , I would not be surprised that those E.B.T. cards would have welfare benefits on them . They are not supposed to , but they may well . Given the availability of $$ at ATMs , people can use them to shop at stores , and , obviously , a WalMart …

.. why ?? …

… Maine wants to Put Through a Pilot Program for Photo IDs [Food Stamps] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,May 12th,2014

.. and the Federales are having a hissy fit over it .

.. with the ObamaCraps , it is doctrinal and philosophical . Those photo IDs can easily be used for voting IDs for the elderly and the poor . Guess why ?? ..

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview]..
.. [link] to the blog news ..

.. so , Maine is trying to put through a pilot program for its Food Stamp program . Good . They should be . The Photo ID requirement would ensure that the benefit recipient using the EBT card is in fact the same person using the card . But the feds don’t like it . They are going hyper over it ..

.. Paul LePage is doing what he can to be a wise steward of taxpayer dollars . He is also making the DemoCraps (both in Augusta (the state capital) and in Washington , D.C.) look like fools . The Dems in D.C. could not care less . The Dems in Augusta may not realize what is happening , though ..

.. LePage is once again in the middle of a 3 – way race for re – election . He won election in the first place that way . This year is a re-run , and so far , LePage has his head above water . He is nearing 40.0% in the polls , with the independent candidate just over 20.0% . If he keeps it up , with managing issues like this , he may well win re – election and flip one or both chambers of the legislature …

… As I put It [the War on Poverty] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,January 13th,2014

.. is a failure .

.. we have spent countless hundreds of billions of dollars on anti poverty programs , and what have we gotten ?

.. less than nothing …

.. [h/t FoxNews.com]

.. to hear it put ideally , listen to one of Bill O ‘ Reilly ‘ s Talking Points Memos on the subject [link] ..
