  1. The bill ALSO contained DOJ settlement provisions of Blue Ribbon Commission. That must be why he signed it and that’s how we all got thrown under the bus.

    Ah, but, this will save “the taxpayer” money (as per the Republican rhetoric), by reducing the cost of services to those who are “only cheating the system anyway”.

    Are there ways to publicize this? While I am broadly opposed to government interventionism, if we’re going to have this program it should be logically consistent and be built to help, not hinder.
