You need to put down the tabloid foxy comic books since you want to refuse to understand that those people choose on their own to live poverty and don't create or want to create their own wealth because they know if they do they loose their welfare and they will tell you that in Detriot, MI which is why they refuse to work and if anything the Federal Government should bring back the WPA(Works Progress Administration) and make people work for that welare that they are getting for doing nothing and I give credit to FDR for that thinking and these people of today who are on the dole think it is owed to them which they have proved FDR right when FDR himself acknowledged the danger of welfare programs becoming "a habit with the country." In November 1933, he said, "When any man or woman goes on a dole something happens to them mentally and the quicker they are taken off the dole the better it is for them the rest of their lives." Early in 1935 Roosevelt argued, "We must preserve not only the bodies of the unemployed from destitution but also their self-respect, their self-reliance and courage and determination."<quoted text>
You left out the welfare of the 1% that they receive. They call it "SUBSIDES"! Welfare on the impoverished is produced by the inequality of the laborers productivity distribution. Had the laborer paid adequate wages they would not require welfare. LOL that's how corporations like Wal Mart take advantage of that. They pay wages below living wages required making their employees eligible for all sorts of welfare programs as they are in poverty. Wal Mart presently require $900,000 in local communities to "SUBSIDIES" their labor force. Put your tabloid foxy comic books down and try to actually get the reality of what is transpiring right before your very eyes. Try a EGADS a book like "Price Of Inequality." Written by a Nobel Prize winner in economics.
Later that year Roosevelt noted, "In this business of relief we are dealing with properly self-respecting Americans to whom a mere dole outrages every instinct of individual independence. Most Americans want to give something for what they get. That something, in this case honest work, is the saving barrier between them and moral disintegration. We propose to build that barrier high."

Works Progress Administration
The Works Progress Administration (renamed in 1939 as the Work Projects Administration; WPA) was the largest and most ambitious New Deal agency, employing millions of unemployed people (mostly unskilled men) to carry out public works projects, including the construction of public buildings and roads. In much smaller but more famous projects the WPA employed musicians, artists, writers, actors and directors in large arts, drama, media, and literacy projects
