This is nothing new. Years ago when my sister was confined in a Psyc ward due to a TBI, the lead social worker told us a large percentage of those in the ward were from other than NY. Many were fresh off the bus, imports that other states that gave cheap one way tickets to NY instead of Mental Health Services, they had instruction sheets to point them in the right direction once they get here.

Not just Mental health, welfare as well. We give away to outsiders more than they could get in their own states so they come here for help or parish where they are. I think its a pretty sick and sad policy for the places that do that.

It is sick for the mentally ill, certainly.

As for slackers, I guess I disagree. A former Premier (aka Governor) of Alberta, Ralph Klein, announced that welfare cases would have to attend in person to pick up their cheques soon after he took office. In the first month, 30,000 people didn't show up (or didn't exist). Then he announced that all the able-bodied would either take whatever jobs were available or take a bus ticket to the Left Coast, where slackers were subsidized. Many left and never came back.

He was affectionately known as "King Ralph". I sure wish he was still in charge. He was just like us and not afraid to say so.
