I couldn't seem to start a new thread. I know a good single parent works hard 40 hours per week 3rd shift at a local factory through a temp agency. This person has yet to be hired on yet they have been a perfect employee for 4 months now. No drugs drinking or smoking. Has applied for families first and housing services and was denied both because this parent "makes too much". Now after reviewing this persons budget including gas, rent, daycare, etc ... He is going in the hole $3 per month and we didn't even factor in food or diapers. He lives modestly, doesn't even own a microwave drives a small older car good on gas and rent is only $300 month! We have given what help we can until he gets hired on to make more money but tell me WHERE THE HECK is the help in this county for good people WHO ARE REALLY TRYING???!??!? Any suggestions on temporary help services would be great. Food help, utility help, rent help or daycare help. ANYTHING AVAILABLE FOR NON DRUGGIE NON LOSERS HERE??????
Most of our federal and state officials are republicans and they are cutting all kinds of help for the poor. You will only see this problem get worse and worse. So far they have cut unemployment, food stamps, school lunches, retirement for soldiers and veterans. Now, even though the congress has passed a budget, they are talking about shutting down the government again over the debt ceiling.
If they have already approved the budget why are they not going to raise the debt ceiling to pay for the budget they have already approved? Because they are idiots!
Folks in need who vote republican are cutting their own throats and their kids throats! Do not do it!
