the government has been pushing a socialist system where the rich have to pay for the poor. It has never worked in any country because the rich move away or people stop working because they can live just as well on the government instead of slaving away and not getting anything out of it. My husband works hard in the coal mines. One year he was laid off and after going through all our savings while he tried to find a job, we eventually had to ask for food stamps for a few months. We ate better on food stamps than we ever have with him breaking his back at a job. Welfare should be so misreable people can't wait to get off it and get a job. No, they get free rent, free phones, more food than they could ever eat, it's a failed system. Why should anyone work when you can get a free ride?

its called the working poor. if you do work and have insurance,,its most likely no good,if you can afford it, they are real quik to scream pre existing or out of network. then they tax your weekly check to death,plus gas. plus groceries,plus utilities.plus car and home insurance. sad to say but it makes sense to ride the system

While some people bleed the system because it's easier than actually working, there are others who rely on it for a supplement.

I am a working mother. I work 50 hours a week to support my children but it still isn't enough. Not to pay my bills and for daycare expenses so I can work. I'm not the least bit ashamed to say that I am doing my absolute best to provide for my children. But we live in an economy where your best isn't always enough.

Again, I agree there are people who take advantage of the system. But it's a very callous thing to say a system that helps so many children survive should be so 'miserable' no one could use it. We are a country that should take pride in helping those who need it, as long as they are actively helping themselves. As you said, you were in a position where you needed assistance. What if the system was 'miserable' then? And you couldn't get the food you needed to make it through those tough times? You, or your husband rather, isn't immune to that happening again. So I would be more careful about hoping for the deterioration of something that could potentially save you..again..

you know what i think is really sad...no, pittiful...no, down right shameful? the state and us government are filling the bill, allowing all these POS scumbags mooch off the system and have TURNED THEY'RE BACKS ON AND REFUSE TO EVEN ACKNOWLEDGE AND/OR ASSIST IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM THE UNITED STATES MILITALY VETERNS!!!!!

this is not only sad,shameful,dirty,and makes me hang my head in shame to see our government send our troops to war, expect them to lay their lives down, leave everything and everyone, go to a hostile and unforgiving land, do what they are told to do without question or reguard for their own lives, and then when they come home hurt(mentally and psycally), body parts missing, scars, and many diffrent perminant injuries, THEN JUST TURN THEIR BACK ON THEM, NO THERAPY, NO PROSTETICS, LITTLE TO NO HEALTH CARE FOR ANY OF THEM!!!!!!!!!!
after all this im suppose to support our government??????????
makes you proud to be an amreican now dosent it?NOT...NOT...NOT!!!
just hand everything to those who do not need or deserve it, then in turn refuse those who are most deserving, in the most need, give nothing to the ones that gave all!!??

i am proud to be an american, i fully support and respect our troops, but wouldnt make the effort to unzip my pants to piss on the government if they were on fire!!

I completely agree 100%. The government will break them but wont lift a finger to fix them. The VA around here is a joke! You see 10 different drs they all hand you a grocery bag full of pills and say "take this stuff and tell us what works" They give veterans the runa round and STILL charge their insurance for all the worthless "help" they give. Our veterans, excluding WW2 veterans, do not recieve free health care from the country thathurt them. Meanwhile, local crack head and her 15 children get free houses, free phones, free healthcare, free food. It's disgusting!

Because they are lazier than shit and most are on government checks. I can see people that are really disabled and the elderly getting disabilty checks, but bygod not all these healthy young bucks getting checks. Seems like the age range for all these young ones that are on checks start at 18 to 40!! How the hell do they even know that they are disabled, they've never worked to know?LOL The government needs to cut their sorry asses off the free ride and make them work. If they don't work, then they don't eat, simple as that. But hell, the majority of them would rather starve first than to work for food, they would be stealing everybody blind!! Low life pieces of shit!! The young ones want the older ones that are broken down from all their years of working to keep on working bygod, so they can get their check each month!!
