    Publish the Names of Food Stamp Recipients?

    Is it a good idea to test welfare recipients for drugs?

    I think it is indeed. Why should I pay my taxes and see those lazy bums getting their welfare just to buy crack or pot? I think it's unfair. All welfare recipients have to be tested for drugs every time they get their welfare checks. Maybe it will teach them how to work. Or I have an another...

    Make Welfare recipients work for it

    NYC requires folks who are on public assistance, to work for it. They are required to perform menial jobs such as picking up garbage, cleaning parks, or basic office duties if they are unable to find their own job after a period of time. This makes sense. If you are physically/emotionally...
