  • 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 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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 provides for poor

    Putting Welfare into america gives the lower class Americans the amount of money and needs that they need to survive, and live. So im just writing the rest so i can get my word out on the website to get the vote, or maybe im stupid j j j j

  • Welfare is good, but it has alot of drawbacks

    Welfare is a great system for those who are in need of it, but there are many people on welfare who don't need it. A lot of people cheat the welfare system and this needs to be stopped. Welfare should enforce stricter policies, where you are only allowed to be on welfare for a certain amount of time, unless you have a disability that keeps you from working. This will help our economy grow by decreasing the unemployment late, and having more money to invest.

  • Welfare is good, but it has a lot of drawbacks

    Welfare is a great system for families with low income, but the problem with welfare is that there are a lot of people on it, that don't actually need it. Unfortunately, the number of recipients keeps growing. Unless they have a disability and are unable to work, welfare recipients should be limited to welfare for only a certain amount of time. This the recipients who need it get more money, and we would be able to decrease the unemployment rate.

  • 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!

  • I donot support the welfare

    Every system created for good purpose. THe govt should encourage every one to do some short of work. The immigrant in USA does that like cleaning dishes, toilet etc. They should not feel shame for it. There is no free money. The govt. Make an law for fair wages to live, cafeteria with min contribution, child care, health, education etc and some way for saving emergency condition from the government and corporation for doing the work even for some disability people by continuing the benefit. All this is healthy for govt system. The idle mind is devils mind. I do not know know the law said but the govt. Should give tax break for hiring those workers. It punish the people that work hard and low earner and non working people abuse it or does not encourage to work,. I support the people even eran $1 per month. I would to like govt take care off this people for working.

  • Charity is great...

    ... But being forced to give your earned dollars to a group of lazies who don't even need it is not charity. I'm sure that there are plenty of people that actually do need it who are on welfare, because the big breadwinner of the home got laid off or ditched the family unexpectedly. Cases like that are great for welfare to step in and help them get back on their feet. However, we have gotten to a point in America where people are able to just live off of welfare and mooch for their entire lives when there are work options available.

    If welfare continues, the people on welfare should be monitored and pressured by society to start working as soon as possible unless they physically can't or have a mental illness.

    Basically, I agree with most of the other arguments that have been made for this side.

  • It is not good

    It's not good right now because you can cheat the system and get benefits you don't need. Someone can get a food stamp card and buy candy bars . That's wrong . Some people who really need it cannot get it because it's so over used. Some people get the short end of the stick because they don't want to cheat the system or they can't because selfish people cheat the system. Welfare could be a great thing , if they changed it and gave out drug test .
