This is a slippery slope becasue, we have gone to giving out plastic for welfare or unemployment checks in teh USA in some places. Welfare fraud, is a huge problem, and the taxpayers are tired of it. Florida wnats to have welfare reciepients subject to drug tests. These cards should restrict purchases of booze, cigarettes, and lottery tickets. That is not what welfare if for, but welfare people seem to have money for all these things, so its obvious the spending for their children would be affected.
On the other side of that coin is government official spending money like drunken sailers, things like the recient secret servive guys and prostitutes. Agencies have lavish conventions, costing hundreds of thousands, and abusing expense accounts. Who is watching ANY OF THE THEM? Look into what the Obama vacations cost the taxpayers flying all over the place. They have Camp David they can go to and enjoy, why do the taxpayers need to pay for weeks in Spain?
