Have you noticed how many people are getting benefits from the government for being "mental" when all they are are addicts?

We, the taxpayers, are paying people to enable them to use and or drink alcohol when there are many legitimate people left out that could actually use the help. Groups should be investigated as they get money to manage these addicts' money when most of their "customers" should be in group homes instead of being on their own using HUD or Section 8.

The government could save lots of money if they cut off the addicts and illegals.
