http://www.huffingtonpost.com...). People just do not work hard no more they think everything should be given to them that's why we should have more restrictions on our food stamp program not grant anybody food stamps because they get spoiled and from then on expect everything be given to them.and that is......... The worst thing you can do for those you love is the things they could and should do themselves.
did you know that a mother of four with out a job will get around 700.00 a month to feed her children which is alot. but here is the thing as soon as she obtains a job that pays her minimum wage and works her more than 30 hours a week. roughly 217.50 a week before taxes they will change the amount to less than 340.00 requiring the mother who was close to actually getting a head and providing a slightly high grade of life for her children back to were she was earlier.
when you cut the support by so much when such a merge job was acquired how do you expect any person to honestly get ahead.
i say any person who has never needed government assistance for anything should live with nothing for a week.
to all you wonderful college people who think welfare is a drain and you don't think your taxes dollars should help others. i ask did you get government money for your schooling? how about we stop that too. the government is here to assist the population to improve the social standing of all it's people.
i don't think as a country we should take what little those underdogs have but stop wasting time and effort on the not needed.
Lincoln you say? greatest presidents you say? that opinion nothing more imposible to argue for or against as neither of us was alive during his reign as leader or meet the man personally? i personally think the goverment should give more not welfare money but more. it should stop wasting time with anything other than improving the life of people around america. like handing out jobs, housing, forcing people with too much to give back. how can we expect the lower class to do more when the rich and greedy keep taking away. you want community service i like that idea ut lets make the people with millions of dollars do it not the peope trying to figure out how to keep the lights on. get some of those rich suit wearing fat cats that can spend 10,000 on a bottle of scotch. so they can enjoy drinks while looking out from there 2 million dollar highriase while a guy 3 blocks away sleeps on a park bench. your argument is if you give they wont learn how make it with out you. i don't believe it. consider the fact that most those people who need asistance got that way from bad policies created by rich politiancians in order to asist there already rich friends to stay rich. take mitt rouney he makes 57,000 a day from interst on his investment. what did he in vest in? failing companies that him and his friends bought fired the work force then divided up and sold off. but did you see that number 57,000 aday that more than 2/5 of american families make in a year and he makes it in a day.
ever consider that the reason the goverment hands out so much is from the guilt they feel from all they have done in the past to the lower class.
a lot of people work hard and never make it or after they do some where. rich people come in buy there company up cut it in to pieces fire everyone. and sell it all off. as for people doing some sort of free service sure let those people who don't have time go out and spend time away from their kids to pick up a park. sure lets force them to do that but while they are the government can hand out another check to pay the sitter to watch those kids.
i will never support making the poor do more while the rich do nothing but create more poor. rather than pay more in taxes or find ways to contribute to the country. the rich spend millions each year on lobbyist to ensure any new law or guide lines that might hurt there pocket book doesn't get past.
i have never actually thought you wanted to take away welfare completely but any new restriction placed on it will do nothing but disrupt the service and harm the people in need. if you going take away from already imperfect system making it more imperfect it's the same as dismantling it. it's a limited service as it stands it only covers food. a product that is on the constant raise in cost. plus you have yet to list any form or your new regulations thats what government officials do right be for the ram it in deep on the American consumer.
the government needs to leave welfare alone and improve other programs and laws to ensure people receive the assistance they need
welfare isn't about the people who abuse it it's about the people who use it.
my opponent stated that companies only get sold to rich people of there own choice your right. the choice of board members who want to line there pockets. all the other people the common works the office workers yeah it wasn't there choice but yet they lost their job because of it. a week ago none of those people need aid from the government but know they all do. So 10 guys on a board could buy better suits. 1,000 or even 50,000 people are job less who have homes, families, bills, and urges to eat. These are the people that welfare is designed for. Yet my opponent want to penalize them over the few percent that don't ever amount to anything or live as a constant drain as he says the lazy ones. When in truth less than 20% of welfare recipients use the service fr more than 5 years 30 % use the service for less than 1 year in fact.
my opponent claims the rest of the world see's our nation as lazy. when the rest of the world also has similar programs to welfare for it's low income families. yes we are the lead spender but we also have the largest population of people we are taking care of. when you look at many Africa and Asian countries the number of people still starving and dieing from lack of medicine daily is in the thousands even ten's of thousands. That's what my opponent in this issue wants more of our American's dieing in the streets.
i am not nor should any one else be in favor of cutting welfare programs or alter the current ones in thing les than to expand them. with out providing our nation with jobs not small jobs making 10.00 or less an hour but real jobs the ones people can raise a family on save money on.
