Hi Ho! Hi Ho! It's off to work I go......In this economy there is such a thing as a "holiday weekend" for the working man and woman? Maybe for the very well to-do that can afford gas prices that have over doubled in the last 4 years or the 49% that pay no income taxes and get subsidised rent, free food, free health care, oh yeah, and some extra cash "just to make it through". I'm sure being rich is great, at least they or someone in their family, worked for it. I'm sure being poor is hard, but I tell you, being the "working poor" is REALLY hard. Make to much to get assistance. I easily qualify for disability but can't live on less than $1000 a month for 6 months to qualify. Even though I am disabled and almost crippled, I trundle off to work everyday. I pay my taxes, and watch the money go to perfectly healthy individuals who would not work in an air-conditioned office counting paper clips for $20 an hour. So, NO! I'M NOT GOING ANYWHERE ON LABOR DAY! Maybe in 4 years.

Really? If you know of people who are getting aid for which they don't qualify, please tell us all who they are. You're not the only one who wants to prevent fraud.
On the other hand, are these imaginary people you've been told about? If so, there is little we can do about Fox's phantoms.
Give us the actual names of real people so we can fix real (not imaginary) problems.
Thinblue if full of it.
