This is a very SPOT ON answer! Couldn't have AGREED with you more. Succinctly stated!
Welfare is actually for (the children). Punishing them for their parent's stupidity would be immoral. No child is "self sufficient"! How can the government help innocent children without somehow benefiting their parents? That's the real challenge!
Government dependence is a more dangerous drug than any abused substance.
CAN'T argue with you there, Caleb.
Won't be implemented because it IS simple. It wouldn't magically cure addiction, create jobs, or move people into productive roles. More than likely it would simply shift that burden elsewhere (e.g. crime, or other programs).
Since the benefits are actually intended for the (children) what test would they need to pass to have a roof over their heads, food to eat, or clothes to wear? It's not their fault they were born to stupid or irresponsible parents!
Welcome fellow New Yorker! Totally agree as we see evidence of multigenerational welfare recipients in our great city. It has indeed BECOME WORSE. Another A+ answer and well stated, thank you for stopping by!
Thx...NY has become a cesspool in mind. I live on the island now. But having grown up in Queens, I can't stand to even drive through there anymore. I had to drive through the Bronx this morning to get to Jersey. The Bronx...God help me !!!
I know, I know. Many parts of the Bronx is a virtual hellish no man's land. This welfare dependency is killing America. Poor people have to STOP making excuses and start DOING.
To solve this problem we need to focus on the (children) born to these people. Are they not entitled to the basics? Our anger is with their parents! How can we punish them without hurting innocent children? Or should the government turn it's back?
The gov't is an ineffective means of delivering entitlements directly to the people. I'd like to see it largely turned back over to private and public charities as it once was in America with proper incentives from the Gov't.
