Save Our Safety Net

My roomate Greg has been hard at work (seriously... around the clock for several days now) to launch the Save Our Safety Net campaign. Its goal is to convince the DC government that slashing 52 million dollars from social services isn't the best way to balance the budget. There's much more information at saveoursafetynet.com. Pitch in: sign the petition and spread the word, if you're so inclined.

Is this the Fenty plan to give people 6 months to actually look for work in order to stay on welfare? I am all for that plan. Why on earth should people continue to collect checks while not actually looking for work.

No. This is not that plan.

Obviously, these social services are working like a charm. That's why DCs underclass has been thriving since home rule.
