It's likely that the only way to fix it is to tear it down and rebuild it. Making sure that only those who actually need it receive it. And only until they can get back on their feet again. Which is what it was designed for in the first place. If we stopped paying out to the yacht squatters, the "too depressed to work" crowd, the seasonal connectors who move from state to state based on the weather, and the just plain loafing freeloaders, and the corporate welfare recipients, we should have plenty to go around to feed the 16 million kids who go hungry every day in this country.

Sounds great OR
shine a light and expose who is exactly making millions off of it. Follow the money because in the rebuilding process the crooks (politicians) will figure out ways of running a different game with the same results.

The rather simple fix for that is to stop voting for republicans and democrats (and especially, incumbents).
When is comes to following the money, the two parties are relatively indistinguishable.

cant is 100% correct in what he wrote above. But you too are 100% correct.

The Welfare system has become an industry unto itself. Millions of people are now sucking at the Govt teat rather than providing for themselves when they are very capable of managing on their own. But those people are simply the pawns used by the politicians buying votes and creating a class of people who would not be able to survive without the monthly stipend that binds them to their masters (aka, the politicians).

We make jokes in this country about the work ethic of the French and the Greeks. Yet we are fast becoming a carbon copy of the worst of each of those systems.
