Poor and uneducated people may piss away their money, but rich people probably do worse with it. One rich person may waste as much money as a thousand poor people. But 1000 poor people might be better off with the money, while that one rich person will hardly miss it.

I'm probably in the vast minority here, but I honestly don't care about Section 8 housing or welfare recipients and how they spend their money. Sure, I'd be thrilled if the people receiving gov't assistance were all thoughtful and thrifty with their money rather than wasteful, but that's never going to happen. Most of the people receiving assistance checks are too uneducated to know how to spend and save properly.

But here's why I don't care.

If all forms of gov't assistance programs were eliminated today, would the portion of my tax dollars spent on gov't assistance be given back to me? No. The government would simply find another way to foolishly spend the money I give them. That money would almost certainly be put to no better use than it is right now. So why bother getting pissed off over the fact that some dead beats are getting a free ride?

I really don't care how nice or spacious their new Section 8 housing might be. It's still not better than anything I can afford. They have DirecTV? Good for them. So do I. They have nice cars? I do too. So their "good fortune" is not coming at the expense of my own comfort.

If I had any confidence in the fed gov't to intelligently spend that money on other projects, I'd be the first in line to demand assistance programs be dramatically cut or eliminated. But the gov't will piss away that money just as foolishly and frivolously as the people currently getting it. You know why? Because the dickbags in Congress haven't earned that money either and they spend other people's money just as foolishly as some schmuck in Section 8 housing will. So why bother getting pissed off about a group of ungrateful morons getting a few pennies out of your paycheck when the alternative is just giving it to another group of ungrateful morons?

Mark, a capable, self-reliant guy like you should be able to do much better than Section 8 housing.

Mark:

And if employers paid a wage which kept these people off welfare and other programs, they would have to pay for all of these tricked out cars and dishes.

But instead the employers want to pay poverty wages. Those who would actually pay better if they could afford to, would be able to as the public would have a greater amount of cash to buy with.

The rich could have paid better, but didnt. Now a ineffecemt system will collect a greater amount of their wealth. Spend half of it paying for the government expenses and then paying the other half of the taxed money to the recipiants.

Yes, the government cost to operate. The taxed money spent to preset theses welfare programs is money lost to most everyone... But you know what? I jus cannot seem to being myself to tears over it. If the rich man leaves, then he leaves and we will adapt and adopt socialism or communism and continue on.

After all, the poor do not care where their food comes from. The red white and blue, or blood red and good sickle and hammer. So long as their bellies are full and they can feel that their work is appreciated by a wage which doesn't keep them in fear of losing everything.

The game of pushing further, faster ought to be a game played by those choosing to play it, not those unable to play the game as a result of simply never bein motivated enough to do so. 9/10 o all people are followers. Only 1/10 are leaders and capitalism is a game played by leaders, not followers.

CPL: The Section 8 housing now being built have very strict Federal guide lines in order to qualify for getting getting a Section 8 contract, under the rules. People on welfare are no longer allowed to live in minimum standard conditions. Belive me guy. These apartments are spacious and well appointed. I know people who tried to rent there. But were turned down. Sorry you don't qualify. Because they have jobs. And you should see the cars parked there. Nice and tricked out! Not to mention the satellite dishes all over the place.

Obama does not have, and would not have if the rules were changed, control of the national debt.

Congress passes appropriation bills. The President has nothing to do with it.

Interesting. I didn't know that and will have to look into it. She got an IOU 2 years in a row. The first time she finally got a check in the mail maybe 6 months later. Figured we'd see the same thing with the 2nd one but no such luck.

" We just moved out of California 3 months ago after living there for 4 years and my partner is still holding an IOU for about $200 from the state for her tax refund from either 2010 or 2011."

All your partner has to do is take that to any bank and it will be redeemed for cash money. With interest.

If it is from 2009, contact the department that issued it, and they will exchange it for a regular check...

With interest...

California isn't broke? Since when? We just moved out of California 3 months ago after living there for 4 years and my partner is still holding an IOU for about $200 from the state for her tax refund from either 2010 or 2011. If it weren't such a small amount, she'd probably go through the hassle of trying to get it but in the end she'll probably waste more time than it's worth.

Also, I can't help but laugh at the individual who said that the Section 8 housing is the "newest and finest in town." Ok, it certainly may be the newest if it was recently built but I can assure you it isn't the nicest. It was built by the contractor who gave the lowest bid. It doesn't have granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. It doesn't have hardwood floors or crystal chandeliers. It's got linoleum in the kitchens and bathrooms, cheap carpet throughout the rest of the apartment, low grade cabinets and vanities and the most basic light fixtures you can find. And I'm sure that the available sqft in these apartments is nothing to really brag about either.

If the new Section 8 complex is the best in town, then I'd move to a nicer town.
