Welfare should not be abolished for any reason

Con

Arguments

1. More welfare creates a state where people are dependent on a system. In the 1980s, several states decided to extend their welfare benefits, but this had little effect of helping poor families. [1]

2. Has been proven to destroy the father's purpose to earn money through hard work, replaced by a "right" given on women by the state. [1]

3. Welfare culture makes children dependent in government. [1]
