I firmly believe that anyone who signs up for government “help” should have to agree that their voting right will be suspended for the entire time that they’re collecting the benefit, plus 2 full years afterward. That way, even after they’ve gotten off the dole they’ll have to sit out an election cycle and can’t vote themselves more benefits from the leftists that want to bribe them. There would be the caveat that a person could immediately restore their voting right if they repay 100% of what they’ve received in assistance, plus a percentage equal to whatever the prevailing prime rate is plus 4%.

Call it the "Beggars can't be choosers law." The courts would doubtless rule it an unconstitutional "poll tax" so you'd have to add a clause denying judicial review. Not to mention what dope you'd have to slip Reid et al and Obama to sneak it into law.

Does that include Social Security? Medicare? Veterans' Benefits? Farm subsidies?
