I voted. I also agree with you. There should definitely be a time limit on welfare. Cut it off and make them figure it out. The girl in that video looks perfectly capable of doing something. Welfare in general is a bad idea.

The worst thing about this women and this piece, is many who actually need help and assistance who do NOT scam the system are demonized.
The primary problem with employment and the decline of middle class wealth is the top echelon siphoning off their wealth in the US, those who abuse welfare barely make a dent. In the US working wages have declined(when adjusted for inflation) while average work week has gotten longer. Meanwhile the rest of the 1st World seems to have figured out a better way.
When someone runs with what the OP wrote, they are doing exactly what the oligarchy wants.

I have to agree with the Ewok here. I'm not choosing between puke and snot anymore. The fact that people do, is why the country never stops plunging into the eternal spiral of corruption. I'm so tired of people saying stupid crap like "your vote is wasted" when the handful of people who vote 3rd party are the only ones who can see past the B.S.

I voted as well. It was nice to see a lot of libertarians on the ballot and they got my vote....except one guy because he's a nutbag.
Voted no to all the judges as well.
