"drive throughout his district and see the number of proud rural folks who desperately these programs because there simply isn't enough work and job opportunities to get these folks off these programs."

Huh. And yet you claim NY has no issues with its employment climate and business leaving the state?

Toadeeeew -- next time, read the TANF extention rules before you open your mouth (tough I realize when your lips move as you read...)

There are only 3 extensions allowed 1) a child receiving social services AND its your first child, 2) you are EMPLOYED for 32 hrs or less or 3) you've been designated as a victim of family violence.

So, exactly how many current TANFs receive this extension??? One-fifth.

No wonder Toadies are a lower life form...

Reed is dreaming. They don't want to get off welfare and work. There are 10 year olds talking about how they are entitled to welfare when they grow up. It's generational. The only way to get them off is to cut benefits to bare bones. Take away the plastic and go back to stricter payment methods. Stop allowing them to have cell phones, computer, swimming pools, dish tv etc. If you want the luxuries of life work for them!!!!!

One other thing Dcroaker-one only need to hop over the state line into PA and see the boomtown economy down around the Williamsport area. I actually made it my business to go down and see first hand and talk to locals about the gas exploration. Yes I drank the well and spring water and I can assure you that when I exhale their is no combustion!

Take note that Dcroaker fails to mention that the welfare Reform act(a bi-partisan bill signed by President Clinton in 1996)was wiped out by one Barack Obama as part of the "Stimulus" package. You see Dcroaker some on these post get lots of Oh's and ah's from you but not all of us are ignorant as to the facts! Nice try!

Steinerdzzz... I dare you to be a stand-up principled GOP/RW/TP conservative guy and every month, keep only the amount of social security money you paid and give back all the rest you didn't pay.

I double dog dare you to give back any and all COLA increases into Social Security...

But, of course, you won't...

Like Fat Uncle fester Reed, who will never, ever give up the 100% fully covered medical insurance for life he'll receive for being a congressman.

You guys are as phony and mooching as the folks you demonize...

What Fat Uncle fester Reed doesn't come clean with is PATH Act isn't about ensuring that policy initiatives at the state and federal levels are consistent with each other. PATH Act is all about abolishing Fannie Mae, Freddie MAC, FHA and Dood-Frank banking regulations.

All the welfare programs Reed discusses include tax credits, almost all assistance for seniors, all support for all kids in poverty, etc. Again, what Reed doesn't come clean with is that welfare WAS reformed in the late 1990's causing 60% of enrollees to drop out, because the reforms included only 60 months of coverage during a lifetime...

All Reed has to do is drive throughout his district and see the number of proud rural folks who desperately these programs because there simply isn't enough work and job opportunities to get these folks off these programs.
