Required Reading for Sen. Toomey

Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey commented recently that government benefits were too generous and people would rather take a handout than work ("Toomey:  welfare spending too generous," by Jonathan Tamari, Inquirer 3/07/13).  Sen. Toomey should read Alfred Lubrano's article "Of big cities, Phila. worst for people in deep poverty," 3/24/2013.  I would also recommend writer John Scalzi's short essay called "Being Poor."
