I don’t know why we even need a law saying you can’t GET A TATTOO with food stamps in the first place, or why anyone would even dispute that, yet here we are. Welcome to Kansas!
Cash-strapped Kansas has come up with a way to save money that’s sure to ruffle some feathers.
Gov. Sam Brownback and the state legislature have decided one way to control spending is to limit ATM cash withdrawals by welfare to $25 per day.
The new law will also outlaw the use of government funds on nail salons, tattoos, video arcades, movie theaters and swimming pools, according to Bloomberg News.
The criticism comes from people who say that this is nothing more than a way for Gov. Brownback to pander to his base, and that doesn’t actually fix the problem. The Governor disagrees, saying, “The primary focus is to get people back to work, because that’s where the real benefit is—getting people off public assistance and back into the marketplace with the dignity and far more income there than the pittance that government gives them.”
