Therein lies the problem. Welfare is a never ending train ride for many. It isn't exactly a life of luxury, but it is a way of life. It is structured all wrong. If I ruled the world there'd be lifetime limits on such benefits and they'd be attached with obligations. Can't learn a trade/skill, then you can walk the roadside picking up trash. Win win, clean streets, no obesity.<quoted text>
And the Corallary: Give a man a welfare check, a cell phone, cash, food stamps, section 8 housing, Medicaid, 100 weeks of unemployment checks, and he will vote Democrat for a lifetime."
I would subsidize daycare for those who are getting back in the work force and/or gaining an education. Wanna sit at home and loaf? You're watching the kids then. Right now it is the other way around, get a job & lose daycare.
