How about the rich stop complaining about people being on welfare and create good paying jobs so people can get off welfare...Not that hard to see. But is we do away with welfare and food stamps the 40-50 million people on it will turn to violence and crime..It will cost us twice as much as welfare and food stamps did. What then.

Like I said if we just did away with welfare and food stamps tens of millions of people would be homeless and starving...They would turn to crime and it would cost us double to deal with them and cause chaos....HOWS THAT SOUND?
Job creation is one thing. Getting people to go to those jobs is another...ever been an employer? It ain't no picnic....

Make better jobs for the younger tax-payers. The GOPee-bag party is supposed to be all about business so let them for once put their money where their mouths are. Stop letting all the money flow only upwards to the top 1% and start actually investing in America again.
Oh yeah, but then they couldn't get re-elected without the support of their corporate fat-cat overlords. The solution is simple - institute REAL, MEANINGFUL campaign finance reform - and craft the law to be absolutely free of loop-holes now and forever.
Way back then, people warned what would happen. It happened. And you have a point with your statements. Corruption runs from top to bottom. Lots could be saved and those who steal I have no sympathy for.

Atleast they should try to create jobs..Or shut up and don't complain about welfare...The rich have gotten filthy rich as the working class got poor....Either create jobs or shut up and pay your taxes.....Or I guess start killing millions of people.

Billions for agribusiness, but not one cent for the poor or for minorities. That's Republicanism for you, remember it in 2014 and 2016.

LBJ certainly didn't "create the modernn welfare state." As to poor people, they were a LOT poorer and worked a LOT harder and lived much shorter lives. Thus, government aid.

Look back at Depression era pictures of the poor, might advance your education a bit.

our 3rd world status was secured when LBJ signed the great society act into law, that allowed generation after generation to sit on their porch watching oprah, and wait on their check to arrive in the mail. give people free money, and they will never work again...but when the free money runs low, they will steal and kill to get by until the next check.

Print out your religious recriminations, roll them into a cone and use them for a suppository.

Millions didn't starve and steal before welfare.

There is a difference between a hand out and a hand up but Democrats like to keep people dependent on the hand out.
