So, I thought the point of making the investment to get more education was to not rely on government assistance. I want to be careful about my tone, since I was a welfare recipient as a child. I don't think we should stigmatize men or women who need assistance, but this is a frightening precedent for institutions to set for women and families.

Governor, conflated the suffering of people and animals, threatened those on government assistance with unnecessary and unrelated stipulations to receiving their benefits, and used sexual shaming tactics and mocked decision-making abilities that he conflated with willpower, age and intelligence in an unusually insensitive speech on Friday.
