about 95% of the welfare cases are fraud. Everyone knows it.

Where is the proof ? What do you base your statement on ? I don't know if that is true or not, but, I will read the proof.

Just look at the really bad trailer park (you know which worst one im talkin about)Nobody works, everyone is "disabled" but they all have money for drugs? Taxpayers are paying for some of the little thugs' crack, pills, weed, and booze, and the government takes care of their babies cause they won't work.

True story, I just finished taking an economics class at NWCC. We had a lengthy discussion regarding government spending that included welfare spending. The professor asked “What do you think the government should do moving forward? Increase, decrease or maintain the current amount of money being allocated to welfare programs and why? The VERY FIRST student that made a comment had this to say…..”The government should probably put more money into welfare programs, there are a lot of people that are either tired or working or just don’t want to work. Those people need a steady source of income as well.”

Some people need help, but it should be temporary unless they have a true disability. The govt would save so much money if they weeded out the frauds and did more investigating. Some people say recipients should have drug tests, but that wouldn't work because their Children would suffer. They definitely need to do more than ask a few questions if they're gonna hand out so muj lol ey. And look how many people in gore springs that we all know of who are too lazy to work or pretend they are crazy.

It's their children that suffer, that is their problem, if they can't take care of them, take them away. Win Win.

I know, but somebody will end up having to take care of them. Foster parents will get state money to do it.

We need to open back up orphanages. Their success rate far exceeds anything that we have now. Churches should be allowed to receive money to run them.

i dont know what it matters it is not like the welfare (dept of human services) system cares. they just want to sit up in their office and gossip, make jokes, and get smart with people who are trying to let them know about the people who are frauding the system. they really dont care what lies are told or who is telling them as long as they dont have to do much more work than the people that are telling the lies while applying for welfare.
