5. Should apply to everyone getting a tax deduction on their mortgage interest too.
IMO.

Or is the intent just to punish people for being poor?

6. Work for TANF, work for food stamps, work for housing
When is the person supposed to look for a job themselves - and with what money?

7. How many hours of community service did Diaper Dave commit to the Escort Industry?
Vitter the Shitter probably deserves some kind of honor and recognition for that selfless sacrifice to the ladies of the evening.

8. I'm confused
Edited on Wed Sep-16-09 12:30 PM by blogslut
According to text of the United States Housing Act of 1937, provided on the HUD site, an 8-hour per-month requirement is already in there:

United States Housing Act of 1937

Is Vitter asking for 8 more hours? Does anyone have a link to Vitter's amendment?
