No there's not. Educated, hard working people are who pay for food stamps. You have it backwards.

<quoted text>. So it is ok for we the taxpayer to subsidize McDonald's' employees because,based on their income,they qualify for assistance? Is that not corporate welfare through the back door? Employyees need a living wage in our country and health care should be universal!
It's a simple process Needed.

Government decides to hand out more welfare to get more votes

More welfare handouts means more taxes needed to pay for more handouts

Employers pay more taxes, thus reduce employment levels.

Reduced employment levels mean more people need welfare.

More welfare needed means more taxes needed.

On and on and on and on

The moral of the story, be frugal with what you hand out because it makes the situation worse.

This has been proven several times over.

So you don't mind giving welfare to the already wealthy? It's just the poor that don't deserve it, right?
Man , FOX news has your ass full.
Truth is, I don't support "giving" Welfare to anybody. Money should be spent by the person who EARNED it, nobody else is entitled to a dime of the wages earned by another. If the people on Welfare were forced to support themselves, they would be much more motivated to work at making better decisions and living within their means. The Welfare system is making it too easy for people to just give up and allowing people to live a better lifestyle then they are willing to work for. That isn't fair to the taxpayers who are being forced to foot the bill, often leaving them struggling to provide for their own family because the taxes they pay takes such a big cut out of their EARNED income.

For the most part the "poor" are poor because of their own bad choices, their own irresponsible behavior and the fact that they won't budget accordingly to live within their means. I'm sorry there are so many people out there who have not been more motivated to work their way up in life, or who have messed up by getting dropping out of school, having babies out of wedlock before they can afford to raise them, getting involved with drugs, crime, or just not working at improving their own lot in life. That truly is sad, but they should be the ones to live with the consequences of the choices they've made. It does not entitle them to the money someone else earned. They are the ones who have messed up their lives, there is no justification for punishing a person who didn't mess up (the taxpayer) and taking their money to reward the one who messed up with a Welfare check and a free ride every month. They have no right to burden the taxpayers with the cost of their screw-ups, their children and their responsibilities.

Truth is, anybody and everybody who is collecting a Welfare check is a parasite. There is no situation, no matter "needy" they believe they are, that justifies them taking money from the person who earned it for their own use.

TEMPORARILY accepting CHARITY is another matter, it is an acceptable helping hand when you're down and out. But Welfare is not charity. Charity is voluntarily donated by people who have some extra to share. Welfare is money taken by force from people who often can't afford to pay those taxes. Those who believe that they are entitled to Welfare should be ashamed that they are taking food from the mouths of the taxpayer's children.

We were promised we would already be out of these wars and out of gitmo. Guess what more lies from the left.
America needs to get out of all wars/conflicts and mind it's own business for change. We don't need another Hitler obama in the world who brags about how he selects people to murder by drones, this is sick and Godless man is dangerous. Cut the military 75% now and more in the future. Cut all pork and waste, make it profitable for business to create jobs here in America and balance the budget.

Just today the senate democraps are asking for more taxes where they can spend spend spend to get more freebee votes for 2014 and 2016. Watch it happen, watch more job losses and more inflation. The country is already lost. Revolt is all that is left for taxpayers.
