Why on earth would I want a job if I have a government giving me money and food stamps/tater tickets. I would continue to be a bum and make more babies so I could get an increase in the amount of handouts I get. (I particularly like the powdered milk and the 5lb block of cheese.)
I honestly don't care if the working folks like it or not. My federal government introduced this sort of domestic hand-holding a long time ago and no CongressDope in his/her right mind would dare to introduce a legislation to remove it. Could you imagine how the NAACP and ACLU (just to name two of my favorite organizations) would react to that? The CongressDope would be labeled a racist in less than 1 second.
I will do everything I can to take advantage of it too. Why would I force myself to wake up in the morning and put in an honest days work when I can deal crack and get government freebies at the same time.
There are entirely too many Americans that see this hand-holding as justified and proper. Yet at the same time the same Americans complain about taxes. They just haven't figured out what I have ...
If I don't work, I don't pay taxes, and I get free stuff. If I work, I pay taxes, and wont get handouts. Kinda a no-brainer to me.
PS - I am not one of those people who need short-term help. I see them on occasion at the welfare office but by and large that is not the majority. I am one of the leaches of society that feel I am owed a government/taxpayer funded existence. And I get it.
