I like how the OP completely ignored the fact that people living off ssi/welfare/unemployment are required to apply to over 10 jobs a week. The people that do not apply for work do not receive benefits unless they are mentally or physically unfit to work. These people are supported by donation funded institutions or their families. Rest assured, the people that aren't seeking work are not taking your tax dollars, therefor they aren't a problem you should concern yourself with.

Staying home with kids IS work.....one of the toughest jobs there is.
It is disgusting when people think taking children to strangers all day, so they can go relax in some office and socialize, is somehow "better" than making sure your child becomes a well rounded human being.
I apologize if this has already been discussed, but why wouldn't anyone want to work in the first place? what kind of world do you see where people don't want to work?
If you don't work, you don't get money.
No money means no fun stuff like, food, shelter, clothing, electricity, computers etc.
And/or put a time limit to how long you can be on welfare say just as long as someone can be on unemployment. I know people that have been on welfare for years and they are lazy sob's, how bout we get some dirt under our finger nails and work for once. Also everyone who disagree's with me on the fact of Abolishing welfare, could you sign a potition stating that you'll pay more tax money then I pay into it because your for it? I mean if your with this way of thinking I say you guys should pay more taxes!!!! Because... well you want it.
