Getting right with welfare

Authored by Sen. Rob Standridge, R-Norman, the measure prohibits the use of electronic welfare cards at liquor stores, casinos, strip clubs, smoke shops and the like.

“This legislation helps guarantee welfare funds are directed to the support of families as they get back on their feet,” said Standridge.

That’s all well and good, but it strikes us as short-sighted that there’s nothing to keep those welfare queens from squandering Temporary Assistance for Needy Families bucks on human cloning and stem cell research.
