Has it occured that some people that some do need the welfare and disability and medicaid? Is everyone really that pissed off? I admit they should do drug checks for welfare and ssi. And lose their benifits as soon as they fail. Alot of Allen county uses their benefits for drugs and alcahol and having several kids for extra cash, i know this! Not everyones like that though!

I agree that some need it. However it gets very annoying watching ones don't when you bust your hump to basically keep them up. You see people drawing disability that are more able to work than you. That's the ones that get me!!! Errrr

There was a time when those in need turned to their friends, family, and church for help. The government has pushed their way into this role. You could feed the poor through food pantries funded by 100% tax deductable donations but if you did that you couldn't control them. If people are hungry they should get help. Should the help come from a government that has proven they cannot help one group without hurting another?

At what point does help turn into a handout? If it is more lucrative to stay home, do you even try to improve your situation?
It comes down to simple math. When the amount of money and benefits given out by the government becomes more than what can be earned through working everyday, you will have more and more people staying home. With more people staying home, taxes will need to be raised to pay them. When taxes go up people get angry.

Their is a lot of people that are disabled, but look like they are normal people. Know one knows how someone really feels, or what that person is capable of doing. Take myself I look just fine, but I have health issues. No I'm not on ssi or medicaid or any sort of welfare. But my health as now got me where I cannot work so what is a person to do. Yes, their is some that take advantage of system I agree but don't judge by looks. Because you do not know the person health.

We work our asses off and pay taxes so those on welfare and food stamps & also draw Medicaid can sit on their asses and draw free benefits. I earn $50,000 a year and 1/2 the people on welfare drive a nicer car then me. How is that possible? Recipients of the food stamp program should not be able to purchase steaks, shrimp, fish, soda, orange juice, Sweet Debbies, potato chips, cold cereal etc. The only items allowed should be dry beans, eggs, veggies, flour, rice, corn meal, dry milk, oatmeal you get the idea! WHYISIT, I work and my kids need money...I earn it for them! WHYISIT, I have to pay $500.00 a month for insurance plus a copay! WHYISIT my taxes will go up to help those who WILL NOT help themselves! Our government is a mess. We are becoming socialists! If you drive a vehicle worth more than $2500.00 you need to sell it and get a cheaper vehicle. The difference will go back into an account for you minus any thing from the state. How do you like that idea? Each month you should be required to show where each dollar you have spent has gone. Show this to your case worker to keep your hard earned benefits coming in off of my hard work! No Victoria's Secret, American Eagle, Abercrombie clothes. Go to Wal-Mart and only Wal-Mart! WHYISIT, alcahol is spelled ALCOHOL. Enough said, Enough is enough!

I understand these comments but believe me being disabled isn't fun and if you are honest and have a spouse that works then all you receive from the government is the title of being disabled. That is where I am right now they say yes you are disabled and can't work but you are still married and his Gross income is over 2000.00 a month therefore you get nothing no check, no food stamps, and no medicaid so i am pissed off too by those that receive all these benefits and live better than me and work on the side too but what can I do the government runs the world these days not the people.

Don't judge all on this matter. Take my husband for example he is 100 percent disable vet. An retired serving our country but he looks fine on the outside. What on the inside that bad. An we live in a nice home drive nice cars an truck wear name brand clothes etc. But we don't have no food stamps or any other such government help. But don't judge unless u truly knpw why.

I am 100% V.A. service connected too and SSD! I earned it! As did your husband. Earned is the key word here! I gave a blank to the people and to the United States of America up to and including my life! As did your husband! Can you say that about welfare recipients? I have NO love for free loaders! Welfare recipients will continue to receive benefits with insurance while us disabled and retired vets will eventually get the shaft on our earned benefits. I hope your husband continues to rock hard! By the way, interpret what you read a little better! I never mentioned VA. Only Food stamps and welfare and Medicaid freeloaders. I will say there is a small percentage of people that do need a leg up on the welfare....and only a small percentage!

I know....we gave a BLANK check to the USA up to and including our lives. I am originally from the west coast. Take a drive through the real projects of Oakland Calif or Denver Co. or Phoenix Az., Los Angeles. Mercedes Benz, Land Rovers, BMW'S are what you see! They all receive free rent, food stamps, Medicaid, welfare and get free education to boot. All on our backs! They wear nice clothes, diamond rings & gold necklaces. All from drug dealing. Perhaps if we legalized it the govt could EARN tax dollars and cut out all of the slimeballs dealing the crap. How is that?

But I'm sure you've applied for disability? Why aren't you working? How are you paying your bills?

They are taking away from those little mouths when they sell their food stamps, to get money, for their drug habit! I believe they should drug test everyone drawing food stamps! It wouldn't be the governments fault if the druggies food stamps gets revoked, it would be the parents fault for not staying off the drugs and providing for their children.

There are people that has 2 or 3 children, draws social security on each one, draws 500 a month or more in food stamps because of the kids, has medicaid for the kids, and then they go out and work a job getting paid under the table, just so they can still get that handout. That is what makes me mad! If you can work then you dont need to mooch off other people. I have no problem though with people who are truly disabled and NEED the help.

you can drug test all you want but those abuse will always use. I live in Florida. and Florida was the first state to try this and FELL at it. cause only 2 percent FELL the drug test, causing a supreme court to step in and put a hold on drug testing. Now I will say it again its not the kids fault and they should not be paying the price.
