Those are our Income Tax dollars people. Wasted on the lazy and the shiffless
Tax dollars supporting our own people are not nearly as wasteful as all the tax dollars that go to corporate welfare, Israel, etc.

Not many people in the 50s and 60s needed welfare.The jobs were plentiful. And you could afford housing, food, medical on one income. And because of modern medicine, people with disabilities live longer now.

I think you are looking back on the 50s through halcyon glasses
And those 'frikken hippies' you mention. Much of what the original hippies were about was opening things up and getting away from the regimentation of the 50s, of experiments in freedom and challenging that current world order.
