    Absolutely!  So long as globalist corporations outsource jobs to other nations, and America goes to war for globalist's interests, welfare and healthcare should be granted to all of the poor here.

    Absolutely. Working in the United States have changed greatly over the past 40 years as companies bottom line is to squeeze out the most money in profits in the cheapest way which only produces low quality and a fast buck without concern for their workers well being by having 1 person to do the job of 3,4, or 5 people to save on labor cost and expect to produce the same quality that is needed of which can be done with 3,4,5, people and expect the same results which is absolutely insane but it works because people will buy the products even though it is of low quality which will not last long. Payday some day. You can pay us now or pay us later but you will pay us for all of our cheap labor that have made you millions and billions of dollars and you know who you are without naming names. Pay your employees an living wage and you will see your profits skyrocket off the charts. Share your wealth by giving back to your employees with higher wages, benefits, and profit sharing. Do this and you will prosper even more so and your employees will be ready and eager to work for you everyday and you will have the happiest and contented people producing the best quality items and providing the best service for your company and it will be heaven on earth every single day.Wal-Mart.Do the right thing with your employees and the doors will be wide open for you to come and set up shop in any city also you could buy american merchandise and produce your own items with Wal-Mart brands such as televisions, computers,refrigerators, and many other things and produce it with the greatest integrity of products to be use for human being consumption with in mind that will be environment friendly in every aspect of the course of daily business with the public.

    I think It depends on the definition of the word "Reform" and who's doing the "Reforming".....

    "Dems" would "Reform" by making sure Upper Middle, Middle, & Lower Income families and individuals have what they need to survive in hard times. If the only way to accomplish this is to re-channel a little wealth away from the rich and in the general direction of those who are in desperate need, they would consider implementing this strategy.

    The "GOP's" basic definition of "Reform" is to cut or virtually eliminate any and all entitlements ( Which everyone works hard all their life to accrue ), and "Privatize" everything. Rather than your retirement money resting safe & sound in a government insured account as it does now, to be readily available when you retire, believe it or not, the GOP is still trying to convince the working class the prudent thing to do is "Gamble" hard earned money earmarked for retirement, in the stock market.  Only to spend the next 40 or so years praying that the market doesn't conveniently nose dive on the Friday before the Monday in which you planned on retiring........

    I consider myself a "Moderate" Moderate and really not politically biased in either direction, but one thing is undeniable..... If your not extremely wealthy and the Republican Party starts tossin' the word "Reform" around....Hang on tight to your social Security Check, Healthcare Benefits, and any other entitlement hard working people have earned throughout their lives.....That includes "Welfare"....

    WoW!....In retrospect.....I could have written a "HUB" on the subject!!....Or maybe even ran for office in the time it took to write this!!....Or at least assembled an exploratory committee...WHO's IN??.....

    it need to be more fair but also a lot more strict. we need to take care of the people that are in need here but at the same time, we need to force those that abuse it to find jobs or to live without any help.

    I have long argued that Welfare should be given for a limited time. That career training should be offered and they should be assisted in job placement. If that can not be accomplished in a time (let's say 2 years) they would then be cut off.
    End of story, we'll help you get back on your feet, we won't pay you to sit on your butt.

    Yes, our welfare systems in America do need to be reformed.  There are far too many people on the welfare rolls and "gaming" those rolls in order to make a living...women having child, after child, after child, etc.  Welfare should be first and foremost for those who have no other alterntives in life to provide for themselves.  The more people we hand it out to and allow to stay on it long term, the less there is to go around for those who truly need it.  We need some reforms badly in this area.
