though social assistance is needed, should the rules be a lot stiffer.
shouldn't people on welfare have to prove they are actually looking for jobs and should we limit the length of time people are allowed assistance.
As Americans, we like to extend a helping hand but I tend to agree with your position. Social assistance should be a temporary thing that helps one get to a better position in life. Just like unemployment benefits, sooner or later, it runs out. There are those who seem to be addicted to public assistance in that they keep finding ways to get back on it rather than put that energy into getting themselves a leg up. We need to have a better way and we need to get government out of it if we are to manage and utilize the resources efficiently. WB
People on welfare do have to prove that they are looking for work but it is a very superficial process. As long as you give a couple of names in terms of places you went to looking for work, you`re good.
So, you have drug-dealers on welfare and people who work jobs for the black market. Now that`s what pisses me off. If you have such a job, you should already be thankfull for not paying taxes. Stealing money out of the welfare pool is crossing the line by quite a lot in my books. There are people who are truly in need and receive no help because there are maggots out there taking more than they deserve.
The process of giving welfare and supervising those on welfare definately needs to be fixed.
OK, it's official Mr. Happy is just a dumb ass with no knowledge of reality. Don't you have to be 18 to use this site? If you want to run your mouth at least have your FACTS straight.
social assistance isn't coming from the same place. Rules being stiffer... define your areas of assistance a little more and the question would be easier to answer.
Instead of cussing people out, how about respecting everyone's opinions. Mr. Happy has a point, In my profession I've run across people who exploit the system. They get food stamps, section 8, and other assistance, sell it for 0.50 on the dollar and have flat screen tvs that take up half the wall.
The system is superficial in checking for if the person is looking for employment. You simply list the jobs and places you put in an application but they don't check. The gov't cutbacks simply don't allow for the resources to police the programs in detail.

One of the favorite claims by the Right-wing is that once a citizen receives welfare, they are wedded to it for life. Now I know (hope) that is just so much hyperbole but the point they are making is that once welfare is given, it is a long-term affair.Can any of you who believe that PROVE...

Why vote for the party that wants to keep you dependent on the government?I am not saying that I believe all minorities vote Democrat, nor that all of them are dependent on government assistance in its many forms. I know that is not the case, so don't let that be the only thing you respond to...

bankrupting the United States? Before the advent of mass welfare, people worked and made their way in life. No job was too degrading to do as long as it put food on the table, clothes on one's back, and a house to live in. People were PROUD and GLAD to work and be independent! The advent of...

The "Great" Society which was instituted in the 1960s led to the current welfare state & the massive socioeconomic malaise associated with it. Many people on welfare are able-bodied people who CAN but WON'T work. Also, much of welfare is generational. There is...
