I'm not against the using of funds to help people who are working and those especially who are helping the community through their work (nurses, firefighters, teachers, officers), but I do find it sad that the people who do these jobs even need this assistance. These should be good paying jobs! It seems that this program, which will likely use tax money to fund, will mainly benefit state/local government workers, who are paid with tax money. Why not just give these people more pay for their valuable services so they can afford a nice house and be able to put food on the table? Higher wage also means more tax revenue for the state, of course this depends on how they tax the benefit this program offers these people.
