I understand if you do not wish to say, but much like other topics around here, I don't understand the anger towards a system made to help people in
Again, if the roles were reversed, I wonder if you would feel so strongly....
I am sorry, that we sit here and debate a system that helps more people than it harms....
Life must be harsh for you, if you think you deserve your fraction of a cent more than a child that has NO choice on who their parents are or if they
are here legally, or even if their parents are lazy and choose to look after their own selves rather than the life they brought into this
world.....What did these children do to you?
As for the people that abuse the system, no, I do not say it is ok....but...Have you never taken advantage of any situation to benefit yourself?
Humans...bah...so self centered and unwilling to help their fellow man....
Yes, you may ask. I am an accountant.
It does matter to me a great deal what I, and millions of other tax payers are paying.
The point is people are abusing the system. People are stealing from it!
I don't mind the people getting it that honestly need it. That is what it is there for. Not for a bunch of lazy criminals to leech of
People are taking benefits from welfare and SS and NOT PUTTING BACK INTO IT. At some point it's going to RUN DRY. And you better believe I'm MAD
at paying into it for 20 years and not being able to get that back out.
I WORKED FOR IT LEGALLY! THEY STOLE IT FROM ME!
What about when I do need some kind of assistance. I won't be able to get any even though I pay my fair share for all the dead beats and the
illegals. Insurance is very expensive, if I want a certain operation. I get to pay $8,000 extra out of my pocket because the illegals are
bankrupting our hospitals. Is that fair? I work, pay my taxes and yet still get penalized because our governments keeps handing out freebies to
criminals. ILLEGALS ARE CRIMINALS!
I raised my kids alone too. My Ex never paid a dime in child support. I put myself through college. I asked for day care assistance. Hell, I was
only 19 years old. I was told I made too much money to get assistance. We could barely afford to eat. We lived on tomato soup. I weighed 90
pounds, but I kept on trucking on because I knew someday it would be worth it. We struggled very hard. I look back and have no idea how we made it,
but we did. The system really does not help people who are TRYING to help themselves.
Let me give you an example of ILLEGALS that feel entitled to programs they HAVE NOT PAID INTO and probably WILL NEVER PAY INTO. We don’t owe them

Let me see if I correctly understand the thinking behind these protests.
Let's say I break into your house.
Let's say that when you discover me in your house, you insist that I
But I say, "I've made all the beds and washed the dishes and did the
laundry and swept the floors.
I've done all the things you don't like to do.
I'm hard-working and honest (except for when I broke into your house).
According to the protesters:
You are Required to let me stay in your house
You are Required to add me to your family's insurance plan
You are Required to Educate my kids
You are Required to Provide other benefits to me and to my
family (my husband will do all of your yard work because he is also
hard-working and honest, except for that breaking in part).
If you try to call the police or force me out, I will call my
friends who will picket your house carrying signs that proclaim my
RIGHT to be there.
It's only fair, after all, because you have a nicer house than I
do, and I'm just trying to better myself.
I'm a hard-working and honest, person, except for well, you know,
I did break into your house.
And what a deal it is for me!!!

accused of cold, uncaring, selfish, prejudiced, and bigoted
Oh yeah, I DEMAND that you to learn MY LANGUAGE!!!
so you can communicate with me.
Why can't people see how ridiculous this is?! Only in America
I will say again. I have NO PROBLEM with those that get benefits who TRULY deserve them.
