workfare for the whole family

Yo. this is a great idea. Welfare mothers aren't recieving a blank check, they're actually being given money based on how well they're managing their lives:

It's happening in mexican rural areas, with a slow matriculation into the cities, but i think it's a great idea.

To implement something like this in the States would almost be a snap, we have a lot of record keeping in the schools and medical clinics. Setting up the database and tracking of it would be costly, but dollar for dollar this would be a lot better than giving chronic welfare mothers a blank check.

Accountability from the bottom up. Someone call Bill Cosby
