  • You have no idea

    Half of the people against welfare think that people just will be lazy. Correction. Welfare isn't even enough to survive off of!!!!! Its just a helping source. Another Point; so for the women for example who had a great marriage and 5 kids then the husband say, leaves for some reason, now she's alone to feed these kids and maybe a few extra food stamps will help each month. Or the families with disable children know that its super expensive, and working at Walmart just not going to cut it. And of course you wouldn't know how expensive these things are on the say no side because again you are against something that's easy for you to live without. Lets also not forget Denmark, named the happiest country on earth, has a great WELFARE system. But as Americans we don't care about others, that's the real problem, instead of happiness the American dream and getting money and "making it" in society and no one on the negative side can argue that that's not part of their reasoning .

  • Welfare benefits outweigh the drawbacks.

    Welfare is crucial for society to function. With welfare, we are able to give people an opportunity at life that they cannot provide for themselves. Welfare enables people to become more educated and get better jobs. It strengthens our economy and is essential for society. Yes, welfare is abused by many but the positive effects of welfare strongly outweigh the disadvantages. Furthermore, the amount of money it costs us to provide welfare in out taxes helps other much more than it effects us negatively. Shouldnt we give to others if it is in our power to do so without sacrificing much? You be the judge.

  • Welfare is a good thing.

    It is a good thing because people who work hard and have a big family it's hard for them to take care of their kids and work at the same time. So, welfare is a good thing for families to have. If your are single they shouldn't get welfare because they are only supporting themselves.

  • Yes, welfare is a good thing.

    Welfare is a good thing when it is used correctly. If people are only being helped by welfare temporarily because they are in a tough situation, then it is good. They get the help they need to get back on their feet. However, when welfare becomes something people depend on, there is a problem. People depend on it, get lazy, and quit doing their share. This, in turn, hurts other people who truly need welfare only for a short time, and strains the pockets of the tax paying people who are working to help them. People living off the system are not doing their fair share to help others, and welfare and its efforts to help our economy end up being unbalanced.

  • Welfare is necessary

    Some people are born with absolutely no means to access the basic necessities of life. How is it alright that in a society some people have jets and condos and n number of houses while some don't have a shack to cover their head with. How can we key the accident of birth determine somebody's life quality.

  • Welfare is a good thing

    Yes some people in America sit on their butts all day and collect money without doing anything, but the majority of people need walfare even though they have jobs weather their job is on or off the books. Just because a certain percent of the people that collect walfare are lazy doesn't mean its a bad thing to give to the poor. Some people need it to live and raise children. Do you really want to deny someone money when they need it to coutinue living and have there children go on in life?

  • We have a moral obligate to help those most in need.

    I apologize for any grammatical mistakes in advance, as English is my second language.

    A populace with access to livable welfare from the government is said to be enabling laziness. However, that is very distant to the truth.

    The truth is that many poor, indisposed households find it very hard or even impossible to survive without assistance. Elderly, sick or disabled people usually can't make it either.

    What happens when someone loses their job and can't get back up?

    The truth is that most funds go where they are needed. In 2008-2009, the poorest 20% of US households earned a meagre 7'600 USD, a figure which can be raised by social programs to even 30'500 USD, which provides basic sustenance to those who most need it. (Source:
    http://www.Cbo.Gov/sites/default/files/cbofiles/attachments/43373-06-11-HouseholdIncomeandFedTaxes.Pdf). More recent figures are likely not that far off.

    Instead of complaining about necessary measure to ensure a basic- decent and humane- standard of living for everyone, US citizens should instead turn to their incarceration disaster. US taxpayers spent 74 billion USD in 2016 to house an insane number of prisoners- 2.2 million. (Source: https://smartasset.com/insights/the-economics-of-the-american-prison-system). That's roughly one in every one hundred and forty five people in prison. By far the highest number in the world, and is almost equal to TWICE the number of people infected with HIV in the US (Source: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/statistics/overview/)

    Of course, there can be considerable issues with poor implementation of programs. Medicare and Medicaid in the USA are some of the most wasteful, inefficient and downright thieving schemes. Health care is rendered unaffordable by the idiotic notion of an unregulated market for health care, which causes prices to soar far beyond any reasonable measure. (Source: https://www.publicintegrity.org/2014/06/04/14840/why-medicare-advantage-costs-taxpayers-billions-more-it-should)

    The truth is that cutting welfare hurts the most vulnerable people, the ones who can't fight back. The ones who don't have the money to advocate their rights as human beings.

    The truth is that a staggering 1.5 million or more households in the US subsist on a meagre 2 USD or less a day. (Source: http://www.counterpunch.org/2015/09/18/extreme-destitution-in-america/). That is criminal.

    A well implemented, well coordinated welfare system is one of the fundamentals of modern society.

  • No, welfare is not a good thing.

    I believe that welfare is not a good thing. It has created a generation of people who do not want to work and expect things to be given to them. Some people have found they can get more money by drawing welfare rather than work a minimum wage job. People waste their welfare money on cigarettes or fattening foods. They have a life-long sense of entitlement.

  • No. Welfare is NOT a good thing.

    The existence of the government-subsidized welfare program leads us to believe that we are, by federal law, obligated to fund the unemployed and impoverished. This not only diminishes the value of charitable donation and the function of community, but it takes a large portion of our tax dollars without our consent, and then gives it away to people who do not want to take a job.

    And yes, I'm saying that the majority of people on welfare do not want to take a job. Why? There are countless job openings in my town, and there are countless people on welfare. I've asked multiple people at the food bank I've volunteered at why they do not have a job. Working at Taco Bell, at a grocery store, or for janitorial duties does not appeal to them. Some have too many felonies or mental health issues that make getting a job very hard for them.

    You wouldn't believe how many of them bought a lottery ticket within the past week with that welfare money.

  • Fox business welfare

    I just think people should be more dependent on there own instead of mooching off the government Blacks lol its ridiculous how you see them with kids all the time the more kids the more they get paid stop having kids and go get a job your pathetic and buy all these nice clothes and get your hair and nails done when your kid needs a better future stop being so selfish and go to school or get a job your ridiculous lol

  • Welfare isn't the Governments Job

    The welfare system in the government forces people to pay someone else to use their money for someone else. This is very ineffective and people should have a choice on what charities their money goes to. I will not support the government paying people to take money from others, and then giving some of it to someone in need and calling it charity.

  • People are lazy!!!!

    It causes people to be lazy.
    I'm fine with it if people really need it, but people lie and say they do when they really don't.
    This is a horrible system.
    Over 90% of people on it are capable to work and to do differently.
    If people can be lazy and get paid for being lazy then they will!!!

  • Get a job

    You can simply apply for a job if you don't like welfare. A well paying job that does not require a qualification may be something like an air-traffic controller, which gets paid around $139,300 a year! That is MUCH more than enough to support your life, and get some other things in your life done!

  • People need to have income independent of the government

    People need to learn to work for their money and not rely on the government for aid. Granted a lot of people do need and it helps keep people alive; however, welfare should be used for so long. Welfare should only act as a short time crutch for people until they can get a job, and not as their main source of income for years. People need to make their own money not just look for the government to protect them. The last thing we need in this country is a bunch of lazy slobs who use the government to get out of working hard.
