I know that there are a lot of us who belive that we should have more provisions and penalties to our public assistance programs to make sure that no one is taking adavantage of "the system." The three that immediately come to mind for me are: food stamps, public housing, and Tanf(temporary assitance for needy families).
What I really wanted to know is:
If there are penalties or provisions who is affected, the parent(s) or the child(ren)?
Would it benefit us if our food stamp program were run like our Tanf program?
Should there be a limitation set on the time you can be in public housing?
If penalties and provisions don't work, should that family be removed for recieving public assistance forever?
Which brings me back to my first, and most important questions, who is really affected by penalties, the parent(s) or the child(ren)?
