  • No. With all the people who are on welfare right now, I think that would really cause a big problem with politics.

  • Think about what you just asked, and put yourself into those shoes. Would you want to lose your right to vote because you're on welfare? I certainly wouldn't.

  • no, being poor shouldn't affect you legal rights as a citizen.

  • No, but your failure to grasp basic constitutional rights has me questioning yours.

  • no...people on public assistance should actually be more encouraged to vote...their problems are usually a direct result of our economy and political issues

  • I don't think so. I do think there should be more restrictions placed on receiving welfare, but I don't think that you should loose your right to vote.

  • No, being on welfare is not a crime, much less a felony. It doesn't render one a non-citizen.

  • Wow, um no. That doesn't even make any sense. Why would they lose constututional rights because they are having hard times. Just wow
