The writing for this is so ambiguous one would think he never went to law school "Part of a month." If a child were to be absent for one day that would be considered part of a month. These old white guys need to realize social security isn't welfare. People pay into it the moment they join the workforce. ALSO for everyone voting in favor of this believing that teenagers are getting social security they aren't. This would mandate that they have perfect attendance in school otherwise they won't get social security benefits when they retire. READ THE BILL. I'm 22 I'm not receiving social security benefits so don't assume a bunch of teenagers are.
