This. Is. Shit. (for the poor in Minnesota)
Yes. That is a link to republicans making it illegal for the poor and needy to get any sort of aid. Well, unless they have a bank account, which most don't. It prevents them from having twenty dollars in cash in their wallet. I mean really?
The idea behind it is so the money isn't used on drugs or things they don't need. Which by itself is a good idea and when you first read the title of it, that's all you think it is. But when you get deeper and follow the links, you realize that there are those who aren't drug users, who have no bank accounts or homes, and who desperately need the money.
Of course, the system is flawed. You could require drug tests and not give money out unless the person is clean. But they are still people who still need to live. What will they do without money?
It's crap what the system is. But it's worse that some people spend their entire lives contributing to how bad it is.
