Louisiana Welfare Program Prohibits Fund Use For Nonessentials
BATON ROUGE, La. – Louisiana welfare recipients will be prohibited from spending the federal assistance at lingerie shops, tattoo parlors, nail salons and jewelry stores, under new limits enacted by state social services officials.
The Department of Children and Family Services announced the emergency regulations late Thursday. They cover the Family Independence Temporary Assistance Program — commonly known as welfare benefits — and the Kinship Care Subsidy Program. (Source)
Of course, recipients can simply withdraw the cash from ATMs and use the funds for unnecessary items and services.
Another program exploiting hard-working Americans.
