Letter: Require welfare recipients to do community service

I am responding to the individual who is crying “foul” over people on Medicaid possibly losing their benefits. What the states are looking at is not to take away Medicaid from those who need it (elderly, disabled.) It is getting people who are getting their generous welfare payments to be evaluated for work or community service. After all, we are all paying for this benefit, so why not have people do something besides sit at home and collect their check? There are people who come here to New York for welfare because it is so generous. I am sure they can do some community service.
