You might want to actually go look at some statistics on welfare instead of spouting off Foxnews talking points...
Not so much a fan of Fox news or CNN. As a matter of fact, if it wasnt for Discovery, Animal Planet, FX, Nat Geo, and my football stations, I woudln't have much use for the TV at all.
I get my facts from opening my eyes and seeing things every single day. Every day I have to go into town, every time I go to work. I get to hear it and see it first hand. I have heard people say they are trying to have another child to increase the help they get from the government. I have seen the flood of people at Wal-mart on food stamp day. I have seen the lady in line pay for her food with food stamps while talking on her Iphone. I have seen the lady with 10 kids from 8 different dudes living in a free row house getting free heat and free food. I have heard the incarcerated state they like coming back to jail in the winter because they have 3 hots and a bed, and best of all free heat.
The system is and has been broken. It needs to be fixed. Simple things could fix it: drug tests, job training, and sterilization. Career goals should not be to spit out babies and live off the system. We have allowed this to go on for far too long. You want some actual links??? OK:
This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.
Really? I am a family of 6 and I have no problem feeding my kids, clothing them, or putting a roof over their head. I also feed my hobbies. And my prep storage. And I do not make 6 figures. If you are a family of 6 and you can't survive on $57,000 a year, there is a SERIOUS issue in the way you live.
It needs to come back to hard work. Nothing like hearing people complain about the cost of fuel oil to heat their house, and when I suggest saving that money and installing a wood or coal burner, I get: But that would require me having to work to get my heat! People dont want to cut and split wood, or move coal. Seriously? Nah, instead they live high on the hog and get heat assistance. http://www.dpw.state.pa.us/foradults/he ... /index.htm
So they get help to heat their house and watch TV on a 60" flat screen or drive a new F-150...
