I have a solution for Rhode Islanders that collect food stamps, and welfare, to pay the tax payers back for their generosity. If they're not going to work, and rely on others to put food on their table, and a roof over their head. There should be mandatory public service for these individuals. They can clean parks, beaches, public rest rooms, pick up trash, paint public buildings, etc, etc. This way they are productive members of society earning their keep. They will also feel better about themselves, and perhaps develop the motivation to get jobs.
