I agree that HUD needs to take a tough stance on these women who are harboring these thugs. Pull the vouchers of a few and that should send a message to the rest.

TomSays The farm bill was simply to separate subsidies given to farmers from the food stamp program. Food stamps aren't going anywhere, the program is to be by itself. Thank God, our Congressman voted 42x to revoke Obamacare. I didn't know it was that many but it gives me a sense of relief knowing our Congressman does what needs to be done regardless of Obama's popularity points. Crime is over-ridden in HUD, Section 8, and JMHA housing sites but also in other low-income predominately black neighborhoods in Steubenville. I have to take a drug test to work my butt off so why can't JMHA, HUD, and Section 8 give regular drug tests to tenants and all applicants? If the funds are there to do so hiring someone specifically to combat fraud may help tremendously with these women who allow their criminal boyfriends to fraudulently live with them in housing units. Regular random checks for unauthorized persons, drugs, and often regular random drug screening I think would do wonders.

Johnson has done nothing for the citizens in his district except vote for revoking Obamacare 42 times. Look at his record. He voted for the farm bill that removed food stamps top feed the truly needy. Not someone I would want for my congressman.
