I deal with people who are ACTUALLY poor on a fairly regular basis.
I'm talking people who live in cinder-block houses or small trailers with no air conditioning or heating, sometimes no running water/indoor plumbing,
and no car. They may have a small radio or TV with rabbit ears.
I have also been to Central American and Caribbean countries and seen the poorest of the poor.
These are the people who are deserving of public assistance. I have exactly zero problem with giving people like this a hand up.
The people who have multiple newer vehicles, multiple TVs, flashy clothes, new phones, and have disposable funds to buy alcohol, illicit drugs, and go
out to the nightclub ARE NOT poor. Yet they feel entitled to tax dollars...
I see 3rd and 4th generation tax parasites all the time who have no drive or desire to go out and make something of themselves because they know how
to game the system.
