DRUG TESTING FOR WELFARE RECIPIENTS

Mandatory drug testing in order to collect welfare checks is something I'd like to see. And why not implement the same idea as WIC program does for food stamps? You are only allowed to buy what is EXACTLY printed on the voucher. I can't tell you how many times I'm standing behind someone on state aid with steak, chips, pop and other JUNK in their carts while I'm buying ground chuck!! I've paid taxes for over 30 ...more »

Taxation and TAX CAP

We desperately need both a property tax cap, and reformation of the way we distribute our school tax burden. We must be innovative and follow other lower tax states examples on how to provide quality education, while simultaneously lowering our insane tax burden. The time for both property tax relief, and reform is now. I am sure most suggestions will revolve around those principles.

Stop state agencies from holding useless meetings

I recently retired from the State. Every year the State agency for which I worked would hold a 3 day conclave for middle and upper management (Grade25's and above) at West Point. Their stay at a local hotel and their meals were all paid for by the Taxpayers. They would spend their time listening to motivational and inspirational speakers who were also paid for by the taxpayers. These lectures were overgeneralized, had ...more »

Responses to these posts

Find a daring politician to actually respond to these posts. Lack of response shows just how backwards the gov't is. If there is no response, why did taxpayers pay for this website?

politicians grow up

i was raised that if you dont have anything to say good to say about someone keep your mouth shut. i think the way the polticians say things about each other is foolish. And very immature. why not work things out together instead against. we would probably get out of this mess that we are in.
