Earned? How did they earn them? Besides, where in the hell in the Constitution does the federal government have the authority for any of these programs?
The money for these programs aren't even stolen from the taxpayers anymore. It is all borrowed money. We can't afford these programs, anymore. There is no money!
Remember, Sheila Jackson Lee was also one of the idiots fighting against making sure all welfare recipients are eligible to receive the aid, which republicans claimed would, if the measure passed, reduce waste, and reduce the spending being thrown into those ridiculous programs.
My God, these people give me a headache.
