What struck me was a statement by the politician who authored this little expansion of the welfare state.
“When you have an identifiable problem preventing women from self-sufficiency and there is an identifiable barrier, shouldn’t we help that along when we can?”
It seems to me, that if you're on the :lanekiffin:ing dole, by definition you are NOT self-sufficient. Fact is, being on the dole is the exact opposite of being self sufficient. We are in even worse trouble than I thought if the defintion of "self sufficient" is being changed to include "sucking at the public tit."
