    Not my job to lift anyone out of poverty other than myself. See how easy it is to let people stand on their own two feet

    Interesting read.

    Welfare in America: Myths and Facts | Pat O'Malley

    First, many critics believe that the “welfare rolls” are overflowing with public assistance recipients. Actually, the average monthly participation was only 4,375,022 in 2010. That’s an average of 1,393 people for each of the 3,141 counties in the United States each month. The 1,118,588 adult recipients compose less than four-tenths of one percent of the U.S. population at any given time.

    Critics claim that “welfare queens” give birth to many children in order to get more money. In fact, the average family size is less than 2 ˝ people.* There were 3,323,369 children in those families in the average month.

    TANF rolls are very fluid. Most families collect benefits for only a few months at a time. They move in and out of poverty as their circumstances change. Nearly all adult TANF recipients have a work history. But let’s look at who gets to be poor in the United States.

    People who are so physically or mentally disabled that they can’t hold a job,

    People who are capable of learning, but for one reason or another are uneducated – functionally or financially illiterate,

    People who are just not capable of learning how to do complicated jobs that pay well,

    People who have incredibly bad luck. Yes, they do exist. I’ve known many. One thing after another keeps happening to them, interfering with their ability to get and keep a job.

    People with drug, alcohol, and mental health problems.

    These are the adults who receive TANF benefits.

    That brings us to my favorite myth – that families collect welfare benefits for their entire lives, and for multiple generations. That is not, and has never been, true. Families headed by able-bodied adults can collect TANF benefits for only 60 months –a total of five years – in their lifetimes. Yes, really. Nationwide, only about two percent of TANF families reach that limit and lose their benefits each year.*

    You said stop supporting the lazy ones. It's a myth that the most welfare recipients are lazy. Many work and attempt to get off welfare. Some are incapable of working due to mental or physical illness. Finally, whites are fairly comparable with blacks in terms of receiving welfare -- the difference being a 1 or 2 percentage points.

    Seems rather racist to be singling out blacks in the first place.

    Let me type more slowly. I never said that EVERYBODY on welfare is lazy. I said get rid of the LAZY ones. By saying "ones" I am showing that the LAZY are a subset of the whole.

    Oh and, the post I responded to mentioned blacks, I was merely responding. Let me attempt to head you off at the pass. I never said that everyone on welfare is black, again a subset of the whole.

    Its not insulting to call a bigot a bigot, because apparently they don't think that bigotry is bad thing. They have no right to be offended.

    So the problem is actually very minimal is what you're saying, since we've established that lazy make up a small portion of welfare recipients.

    The bottom line is he has no solution for poverty.
