    You read it right, folks.

    SAGINAW -- A Saginaw-based advocacy group for the poor has filed a federal lawsuit against the state Department of Human Services seeking to prevent more than 11,100 Michigan families from losing cash assistance under stricter enforcement of a 48-month limit on welfare benefits.

    Attorneys for The Center for Civil Justice were due in U.S. District Court in Detroit today to ask for a temporary restraining order and a preliminary and a permanent injunction to keep the benefits for those eligible.

    Our tax dollars at work against us.

    So they want (none / 0) (#1)

    I nearly punched out my radio... (none / 0) (#2)

    ...when I heard this on WWJ this afternoon (I go through more radios this way).

    This gem takes the cake:

    "WWJ and Fox 2 Legal Analyst Charlie Langton says that means those who were getting those benefits will continue to get them.

    "My guess is the state will send out the proper notice telling the welfare recipient exactly what their rights are and why their benefits are being stopped. So ... the benefits could stop but they have to continue until the state complies with the law," said Langton.

    Langton says the motive behind the judge's order was that the notices that were sent out by the state were improper and did not contain the reason why the benefits were being stopped. And he says, they did not give instructions on how to appeal the decision."

    Don't get me wrong here. I like Charlie Langton. I've met him at several functions and the man is as outgoing and "out there" in person, as he is on TV. And he definitely knows his stuff on the issues. My anger was not directed towards him in any way after hearing that story.

    The main problem that we have here is that we have a Klinton-era appointee (read: Judge Borman) mucking up a process that should've been dealt with literally decades ago.

    There is no provision in either the Michigan or US Constitutions that allow for the government to take money from me to give to someone else for no reason.

    Benevolent charity doesn't count.

    Look, just send out a letter to the moochers telling them flat-out that they are cut off from the public trough because they were never meant to have access to it in the first place.

    Tell the Judge that he's wrong (I can add several more things to tell him, but I'll keep it civil here), and if he disagrees with that assessment, that he will provide the necessary citation of Constitutional Authority if he wants to continue this shake down.

    Really, how difficult is that?
