1. Awful music
2. Corny lyrics

Why doesn't he say anything bad about corporate welfare, banker welfare, and government corruption? No, just blame everything on lowly poor people so you can have a superiority complex.

The ghetto is a nice place to live? Public assistance is a dream lifestyle? The guy has no clue what he's talking about. Poor people are depressed and miserable on average.

It's just a song dude.
I don't think he's saying anything bad about anyone, just the system and how it operates. Giving things away doesn't encourage anyone to work, or maybe I'm wrong.

Unless your handicapped or have mental problems everyone should try and work. IMO it's all about getting votes anyways.

The song is elitist and gross.

You do realize a lot of people on government assistance do work, right? It goes by household income, not if you are unemployed.

I'm very positive I could find a more demeaning song than this, by far. Anyways, thanks for sharing the graph.

The upward trend in government dependency has being happening for quite awhile and has passed through many Administrations, it's not inclusive to the current one.

With the passing of the ACA and it's subsequent Medicaid expansion, this will only further strain the system already holding trillions in debt on top of all the costs accrued till then.

(Alternative source)

Where is the money going to come from to pay for this and it's sustainability?

Verses what? Corporate dependency?

Social security isn't welfare. More people are going on foodstamps because of outsourcing. Huge corporations get tax cuts to send our jobs over seas.Our wages have went down as corporate profit, hours and productivity increase. Calling the working poor lazy is just ridiculous as their jobs are usually more labor intensive than executives.

The country is bankrupt. It's mathematically impossible to pay back the "debt" that isn't even ours in the first place.

But we could cut things like our military spending before any sort of helpful program. Ours is quite extensive compared to all the other powers.
