Maine Governor Proposes Sensible Food Stamp Policy

A lot of able bodies are getting handouts in Michigan and it’s driving those who work crazy. Bridge Card abuse is a hot topic discussed on social media daily.

The Governor of the State of Maine is proposing a policy where food stamp recipients are required to work 20 hours per week or volunteer at a community agency to receive food stamps. Click here to see the full story.

Governor Paul LePage said “People who are in need deserve a hand up, but we should not be giving able-bodied individuals a handout. We must continue to do all that we can to eliminate generational poverty and get people back to work. We must protect our limited resources for those who are truly in need and who are doing all they can to be self-sufficient.”

“There is no excuse for able-bodied adults to spend a lifetime on welfare at the expense of hard-working, struggling Mainers.”

Seems like Michigan could use a similar piece of legislation.

I know there are families who depend on the Bridge Cards but the abuse of the system is a joke. There has to be some sort of checks and balance system in place. Whatever they have now is clearly not working. The Bridge Cards were set up to help people through a rough time, NOT the for the remainder of their lives.
