The House passed a bill that prohibits welfare recipients from using their government subsidy in strip clubs, liquor stores and casinos. It’s sad that rather than actually pursuing government fraud and waste on a large scale, they continue to villainize the poor–as if most welfare recipients ARE actually spending their money in strip clubs, liquor stores and casinos.

By passing such a bill, The U.S. House of Representatives is making a commentary–an accusation against the poor, essentially painting them as frivolous spenders of government assistance. Whether it’s true or not doesn’t matter. The perception is that it MUST be true if they passed a law to prohibit it.
