Today's Metro Column
Wrote a column for the Metro today about Harrisburg's unanimous push to ban welfare recipients from using state money to purchase beer or liquor at state stores. Obviously, I disagree.
I’m uneasy with my dollars going directly to the kitty for rip-roaring welfare-recipient champagne par-tays rather than diapers and baby food, but nothing bothers me more than when I think government is wasting its time, however good-hearted Reed’s intentions.
I’d be much happier if Harrisburg just focused on getting the estimated 2 million people off welfare and into family-sustaining jobs, instead of vilifying them.
