Why is the welfare system in this country so dependent upon keeping welfare recipients down in a financial hole instead of getting them on their feet and out of the welfare state?
I don't know if the intent is overt but in my mind it is a lot eaiser to just give people hand outs than to find creative ways to lift them out of poverty.
It comes from the two dominant powers (parties) in this country having very different ideas about welfare.
The resultant "compromise" is an inefficient system that barely helps.
