Handouts. Would this keep people from having kids they can't afford?
Nope

No it wouldn't. It would raise crime though. If people kill to feed addiction they'll most definitely kill to feed their children. People who suggest cutting assistance aren't usually very smart. Lot more poor than wealthy. And when things get desperate numbers would most definitely count.

Will it make people stop screwing? No, so it will not work.

But if you want to start riots it would be a good idea

If people cared so much about feeding their children they would get a job and earn the money to feed them!! Or maybe not sell their food stamps to buy drugs. Poor people have no business having children! They are being selfish....especially if they were raised poor themselves. Although when more than one generation of a family is poor it usually means they are too stupid to do any better. Inferior genes equal low IQs. When being poor becomes acceptable people don't bother trying to better themselves. The government will take care of them.

if I couldn't feed my children I'd go to your house first. Seriously cut of aid and see which one of you'd be right. Odds are its Not you.

I'm poor and incredible perceptive as well as magnificently manipulative. And if that were to happen I'd rally the troops of my neighbor hood and the many like it to stampede The houses of all those who think "i stay this was because the government took care of me" and peacefully take all of your stuff. I'm going to assume that everyone in a nice house is a republican responsible for taking away my gubment cheese. And then I'm gunna take all their shit!! Woooohoooo

It's really quite simple. If you don't want to be poor pay attention in school, actually graduate from high school, go to college or learn a skill/trade, get a job, get married and do NOT have children until you can afford to support them. Education is a tool that can be used to get out of poverty. As far as my inferior genes comment goes, if you have generations of families that are poor what other excuse do they have besides lack of intelligence? Intelligence is genetic. Or maybe your suggestion is correct...laziness.

The best solution to the welfare problem is to reduce it enough to motivate people to rise above it. The best way to do that is to not give them money until they're broke and homeless, and then give the money to homeless shelters instead. If they're aren't poor enough to need a homeless shelter, they aren't poor enough to need welfare. And the homeless shelters should focus on keeping them drug-free, and training them for work. And we could get rid of the welfare bureaucracy, because the homeless shelters could just accept anyone who shows up at their door, with no questions asked, and therefore no paperwork for bureaucratic paperwork pushers to waste time and money on.

People should work, but work should pay. There's lots of deadbeat employers out there making lots of money while their full-time employees are eligible for welfare. That should be illegal.

That wouldn't work. A lot of jobs exist only because the employees are cheap enough for the job to be cost effective. If you make those jobs illegal, you don't necessarily improve the lives of the workers, but more likely cause those workers to be unemployed.

Go to the wrong house, and you might not come out. BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOURSELF.

But yet you do not care to give your tax money for bullets and bombs to kill people. What a twisted mind you don't have.

It is too easy to live good on welfare. I agree totally people are living in nicer homes and driving better vehicles than I do and their "job" is I to dodge work and mooch. I actually have what is considered a good job around here!

Maybe when deadbeat employers who are making huge profits but paying their employees starvation-level wages begin paying their workers a living wage, people will turn away from welfare and start earning a living.

We should cut the defense budget. We should stop handing out billions to foreign countries that do nothing for us.

We should stop worrying about other people's conflicts and worry more about Americans sleeping on the street.
