I Think We Have A Different Definition Of…

“basic necessities

LANSING (WWJ) – Are Michigan welfare recipients using state funds to pay for strippers? One lawmaker says it’s a problem.

Senator Rick Jones will propose legislation that aims to make sure Bridge Cards aren’t used to withdraw cash at strip clubs or liquor stores.

Jones told WWJ Newsradio 950?s Zahra Huber it’s outrageous that people would spend that money on alcohol or strippers, instead of the basic necessities.

What other basics are there?

    THAT has been a problem here for quite a while. Once they load your happy ‘lil foodstamp/EBT card, you can swipe it most anywhere ’til the cows come home.

    And they did.

    With a healthy dose of “Don’t tell ME what to do with MY money, RACIST!!” added for good measure.

    Florida lawmakers have given final approval to a bill that would ban the
    use of welfare recipients’ EBT cards at “adult entertainment establishments” like strip clubs
    and casinos.

    The Senate passed the bill on a 37-0 vote Friday, sending the measure to Gov. Rick Scott
    for his consideration.
    The bill won overwhelming House approval earlier.
    EBT cards – standing for electronic benefit transfer – are like debit cards. Welfare recipients
    use them to draw down their benefits.

    Critics have said the bill is offensive to poor people.
