    Obama, people need jobs not food stamps! Get rid of your job killing regulations, ObamaCare and higher taxes on job creators.

    What happened to that laser focus on jobs? Or are you just a moron?

    After reading the article, a few noteworthy points.

    Tattoos and cell phones when you're trying to feed your family.

  6. Was it better to pay down the $600 they owed the landlord, or the $110 they owed for their cellphones, or the $75 they owed the tattoo parlor, or the $840 they owed the electric company?


    Which outstanding bill to these people provide the most value?

    Probably a cell phone, next, life ain't worth living without my new "tat".

    Why is rent so high in ghetto apt? Property tax. Some properties the tax is more than the mortgage. This is unjust. Electric bill, sheesh another cost way out of line..

    We need affordable housing and affordable energy.

    Smokes? The largest % of smokers are people living at the poverty level.

    The gov't thinks nothing of raises taxes where it effects the poor with the greatest consequences.
  7. Cigarettes are a good thing as the cancer will kill off these people before they become eligible for Medicare.

    Or their treatment costs will be spread around to all of us non-smokers.
