welfare system. should it be taken down?

DelOLGuY
mmurph123

some people are riding the welfare system. should it be taken down, or should it keep going. some people who ride the system are taking our tax dollars, and using them so they can stay home and sit on the couch all day. Should we really have the welfare system anyway? Practically no one uses it except for the people who hide behind the door of their house being so damn lazy. Should they get their *** off the couch and start working?...
