The government is obligated to take care of its citizens. The government is supposed to provide for the welfare of its citizens if their own personal welfare is not covering their needs. The government taxes its citizens, and in turn uses that money to provide for its citizens who are less fortunate.
The government is obligated to take of their citizens. The whole point of having a government is having people to call the shots and put the well being of the citizens above all else. If they did not take care of us then their would be no point in having them.
