I missed this on Tuesday

With the funeral stuff going on, I managed to overlook this piece of jerk-offishness.

Mich. governor signs 48-month welfare limit

Gov. Rick Snyder on Tuesday signed into law a stricter, four-year lifetime limit on cash welfare benefits, prompting advocates for the poor to warn that tens of thousands of residents will find themselves without cash assistance on Oct. 1.

As Joe points out, Michigan has 10.9% unemployment, tying for 3rd highest unemployment. People are already stealing from food pantries.

This could get very ugly, very fast.
