I oppose H.R. 546 ("To amend the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 to prepare individuals with multiple barriers to") because...support services worries me and sounds like more 99week unemployment payments. We have a huge scam going on in this country with 90%+ fraud in disability and welfare. Lets find out why these people won't work when jobs are available. We can't all have million dollar jobs to sit @ home and sleep all day. We have to many lazy scam artist today in this country and the rest of us working ourselves to death with 3 jobs to pay for these lazy people!

I oppose H.R. 546 ("To amend the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 to prepare individuals with multiple barriers to") because... I have seen your support programs and scams from all angles. I have tried to participate in programs for jobs for food, for training and these are all scams and are only for the benefit of harboring useless jobs and positions withing the states and governments. When I tried for training and I tried for a straw the system was always and by design broken and ineffective.
