Why? Well, to help them, of course!
No word yet on whether Governor Cup or Waffle Cone will sign or veto this
Gee, I wonder which way he's leaning...
You know, if you really want to "help" the poor you could do any number of things:
Raise the minimum wage, fully fund public education, support labor unions, do away with that "right to work" crap, restore all the cuts to AHCCCS, start prosecuting employers who exploit immigrant labor, quit giving tax cuts to the rich while cutting services to the people who need them most...you know, stuff like that.
Things that might actually help the poor.
But I guess it's just easier to fuck them over when they're desperate for cash, right?
I mean, that's the Christian thing to do, right?
