Well shouldn't they have to pay the money back ? A student who gets a government backed load has to pay it back why not welfare?

I was just thinking out loud and yes enjoying some Mikes Hard Limeade. But to the point, it is not their money, after they have gotten over being less fortunate and got a job why wouldn't they want to pay the money back. The money could then be used to help another person.

Maybe they should, after paying their medical bills, giving their kids enough to fill their bellies, trying to get them a decent education, not having to live from hand to mouth, being able to afford a decent home, and maybe even having enough left over for a big night out at a pizza parlor. Yeah, all that extra wealth should go to help others.

We finally agree . Barry hates me because I'm an American . Or could it be that I'm a white American ? I knew he was always a racist .
Thanks for the chat, criminal .

Guess again. Obama hates bigotry, as do I. I guess we both hate you.
