First of all, lets get this straight. Are you saying that we should help poor people in America or poor people in another foreign country? If in America, I will still argue, but I probably wont agree with what I'm saying. Good Luck

Happy Debating,

Thank you Varrack for accepting my debate! Sorry that I didn't clarify. What I meant is that America should help the poor in America, through social programs by the U.S Government.

Okay, I guess I'll get this started. America should not help poor people in America because it causes free-loaders and disabled people to increase. There was a study done in 2013-2014 that says there were 109,631,000, or about 35.4% Americans living on welfare. That is far too much for any country to have. It also ruins the middle class' lives because they cant afford to be heavily taxed. I know several people on disability than can walk and perform any physical or mental actions just fine. This also affect presidential elections because the people who want to live off of welfare or disability vote for them just like Barrack Obama received many of his votes.
