More than four million households that depend on the federal government's welfare program under the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) rental assistance -- and other programs -- could see the money run out after February.
While public housing authorities received January funding and expect to receive February funding, a continued government shutdown means Section 8 Housing Recipients will not be able to make rent subsidy payments to landlords for March 1st, meaning tenants could face eviction.
It will be a tough transition for the freeloaders and professional bums that have had generations of living on the welfare plantation.
For the truly in need, elderly and disabled, there is charity through churches and other charitable organizations (that is what they are for) and why they are in a not for profit status.
This is also a good time to pitch in and help the truly needy and rise to the occasion by checking in on folks that need food, or firewood, or help in general.
To anyone here in this country illegally and receiving benefits, this is your opportunity to get out.
