Oh why the hell not? They've made a career mooching, does anyone think getting older is going to make them want to get off their ass now?

I heard welfare/SSI/SSD recipients will soon be eligible for pensions just like retired civil service. Does anybody know if this is true? I heard that after 20 years on the dole someone can start collecting a pension.
SSD is Not welfare. We payed into the Social Security system for many years. When we became disabled it started to pay us what we put in. YOU PUNK!~~~

agree...but they'll claim some bullshit about their reproductive rights being infringed upon and sue the states and end up with more than just a check each month, plus we'll get to pay for their lawyer on top of it all. Its a no win...

Good idea! Let's start paying them half of what they're currently receiving. Think of how much money we'll save.
If you eliminate all welfare your taxes go down 3-5%.

If you eliminate all parasite layers of public safety that will save you 65%.

Do the math then get a real job.

Actually, it is welfare. So is social security. All are forms and part of federally funded welfare. Look at the federal budget. They all have different criteria to qualify but all leave you reliant on the government. Ha good luck with that! Oh btw dont forget to turn in your weapon,then keep your hand out!

White People Make Up 42% of the Poor, But Take in Whopping 69% of Government Benefits

by Yvette Carnell

If you pay any attention to right wing media, then you know that folks on the right are obsessed with unraveling the safety net, mostlybecause they believe that the safety net benefits mostly black and brown people:

All of the candidates delighted in calling President Obama the food stamp president during the 2012 campaign.
Also during the campaign, Rick Santorum said “I don’t want to make black people’s lives better by giving them other people’s money.”
Newt Gingrich famously added,“I will tell black people to demand paychecks instead of food stamps.”


As we edge closer to Obama making some ‘grand bargain’ to cut Social Security and Medicare, it is important to remember that the vast majority of people who receive government benefits are white. In fact, whites receive a disproportionate amount of benefits.

The Economix blog at the New York Times reported the following in February of last year:

Another finding of the study is that the distribution of benefits no longer aligns with the demography of poverty. African-Americans, who make up 22 percent of the poor, receive 14 percent of government benefits, close to their 12 percent population share.

White non-Hispanics, who make up 42 percent of the poor, receive 69 percent of government benefits – again, much closer to their 64 percent population share.

Read that again. It says blacks comprise 22 percent of the poor, but blacks only take in 14 percent of government benefits. Conversely, whites make up 42 percent of the poor , but take in a disproportionate 69 percent of government benefits.

If Republicans cut these programs, as part of the sequester or any other backdoor maneuver, their issue will be with their own base, not blacks. Although, I’m not yet convinced that some white right wingers wouldn’t starve themselves if it meant robbing a black or brown person of a spoonful of broth.
