Check out this woman running for mayor of Racine, WI who says that if you're on food stamps, you shouldn't be allowed to vote.
According to the USDA, that's 28 million people — or about nine percent of the country's population — in any given month.
"People who are living off the government," Jody Harding reasons, "have little incentive to change their habits." Therefore, somehow they must be prevented from voting for incumbent politicians.
Quite clever, don't you think? Then, in the highly unlikely event Jody Harding becomes an incumbent politician, the attendant flip-flop:
I was for disenfranchisement of the poor before I was against it.
And speaking of living off the government, the mayoralty of Racine is worth around $92K per year, including benefits. Beats food stamps.
