How are so many people who clearly have no clue how anything in our government actually works running for office? Shouldn’t there be, like, an entrance test? Like the SATs of serving your country.
ALSO I ran into the grocery store to grab a few items last night and was behind this young woman who had WIC. And it wasn’t even the plastic cards - she actually had paper coupon/check like things. And they were specific for various items. To the point that it wouldn’t let her get 1/2 the baby food she had picked up, because it doesn’t allow mixed food options.
People are not on things like WIC and food stamps because it’s just so easy.
Intentional lying while in or running for public office about social issues or policy should be a prosecutable offense which carries a mandatory prison sentence.
