There was a time when people who would have been homeless were housed by Welfare. The modern term homeless didn"t become publicly known until after the song "Welfare Cadillac" became popular. Then, Welfare was influenced by popular opinion, incited by "Welfare Cadillac", to drop such sufficient Welfare care. Then, the plague of homelessness spread around the world.

Due to the lack of rules I can legally rebut his arguments, I can also put some opening statements on my argument, Pro claims that a song "Welfare Cadillac" is the cause of a lack of welfare funding which put more people into homelessness. His statements are absolutely absurd. Welfare benefits have gone up in recent years as this graph shows even welfare benefits began to go up after the "Welfare Cadillac song" Thus My opponent has already been disproven, Alas I will disprove of it again with homelessness going down in recent years the bottom graph has disproven his argument also. Now lets talk about the Cadillac Welfare song, the song was never popular what so ever. And your argument put forth that people turned against welfare because of that song, that is not true what so ever since the great depression people that argree with welfare has soared and with more of the population now liberal. On the current site we are on Debate.org 64% of the people on this site agree with welfare. Pro states "Then Welfare was infuenced by popular opinion Incited by Welfare Cadillac, To drop sufficent welfare care" That sentence makes no sense what so ever Pro is saying that popular opinion agreed with welfare but then a song incited to drop welfare care which caused homelessness around the world? If popular opinion agreed with welfare then why is that song relevant to the over 50% of people who agreed with welfare? I have provided my arguement I await Pros argument. All my graphs are from Google Images and the sources that the graphs were made by are listed on the pictures.

Reasons for voting decision: No two ways about it, seeing that con was the only one to provide a proper argument with figures that refute pros claims, only one claim as well, mind you. Since con was the only one who actually lived up to the BOP, con's backed up response outweighs pros only claim and wins arguments and sources points.
