Hey OP, quit your job and be like them(oh yeah don't forget to sell ur stuff first), lets see how you enjoy "free, luxurious life, filled with 50inch
LCD and Escalades"... oh yeah and don't forget to lock your door properly because you might lose you virginity.
I don't see your point here... Are you saying that people on government assistance don't enjoy 50 inch LCD and Escalades? If yes then why did they buy
them? Or are you saying that I just made it up and nobody in housing projects have any 50 inch TV's and expensive car?
I really want these tools to go and live that life if they think its so easy and carefree. All they do is sit in chair and talk about how easy a
jobless poor person's life is.
Look, It's a fact that many people live in the project and receive government benefits because they are physically unable to work. It's also a fact
that many people are trying very hard to get on their feet and eventually do get out of the system. But the majority of people live like this all
their lives and have no desire to change anything. Some work under the table, and some abuse the system like the woman in the video I posted said the
amount you get depends on how many children you have.
I am saying if you want to have kids it's not the tax payers responsibility to feed them.
From what i seen, these assistant programs are looked down upon, if you are on it, you are to be shamed. Many people i heard about got out of it as
soon as they got a job, you know why? because having a job gives you more unlike what your political party told you.
These programs are not looked down upon if it's for honest people who really cannot provide for themselves due to health reasons. I have no problem to
donate some of my money to help them, I also have no problem to pay for health insurance or food stamps or school supplies for children because it's
not their fault they are in this situation. But the problem is that a lot of these children grow up to be the same as their parents and live in the
system all their lives.
Solution is to limit the term of assistance for people who are able to work, and stop paying people that have kids knowing that they don't have any
money to support them. Americans need to start taking responsibility for their actions. And that might take generations because we have so many that
grow up in this environment.
You live in public housing? don't have a job? can't afford food for yourself? Well then, I'm sorry but you can't have children until you improve your
If you decide to have kids anyway we'll help you for two years, but then you are on your own or your child gets taken away until you get on your feet.
I know it's cruel, but that's how responsible people do it. And think about how it feels to work 60, 70 or more hours for minimum wage paycheck to
paycheck just to feed your own family and have portion of your earned money taken out of your paycheck to feed the people that think it's okay to
start a family even though they have no money to support it. And because you work so much you don't qualify to receive medicaid or food stamps.
Of ocurse there going to be bad apples that abuse the system, get under the table pay and still enjoying benefits, but to paint the entire population
that needs the assistance to survive is just bad karma.
Nobody is painting the entire population and there are a lot of bad apples that abuse the system. Like I said it will probably take generations until
this problem is solved.
