Response to Comrade Grumpy (Original post)

50. Do people even know who is on welfare???

Welfare is correctly called TANF. Temporary Assistance to Needy Families-- you cannot get on welfare unless 1. You have a family and you are below a ridiculous poverty level. Single adults cannot get on TANF.

The other form of welfare is Medicaid. You MUST be disabled to be on Medicaid. I am a community health nurse (this is KatyMan's wife) and have been for 20 years. I work exclusively with Medicaid recepients. I have seen maybe one or two clients in my twenty years whom I might have thought were using drugs.

I don't know who these idiots want to test....the quadriplegic that I saw this morning; the 85 year old with 12 different prescribed medications that I saw this afternoon????


People are woefully uniformed when it comes to the term Welfare.
