There is a bill before Congress to not allow welfare cards to dispense cash at strip clubs, bars and liquor stores...

Speaking out against this bill, Gwen Moore.
While supporters claim that the bill is necessary to safeguard taxpayer dollars, critics claim it is stigmatizing those hit with hard times to score political points. Democratic Rep. Gwen Moore, claimed that the bill would "humiliate and marginalize" poor people.

"It many neighborhoods, the closest ATM is located in a nearby liquor store," Moore said when the bill was debated in December.
