    Poor people need to stop having kids. With the ready availability of birth control and abortion there is no excuse for it.

    Why would somebody choose to be impoverished? People that hate the poor always imply that they're consciously making that decision, as if at any moment they could decide to launch themselves out of poverty. There are millions of impoverished people in the United States and there is a multitude of reasons for their poverty. It is truly the apex of ignorance to suggest that all of them are just lazy moochers.

    The IMF calls the revelation “shocking” and says the figure is an “extremely robust” estimate of the true cost of fossil fuels. The $5.3tn subsidy estimated for 2015 is greater than the total health spending of all the world’s governments."
    LOL !

    That article has already been thoroughly exposed as pure bunk leftist tripe.

    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.

    Re: Arizona Makes Painful Deficit Cuts, Including Welfare

    Heard about this on the local news, suppose get to see if the "less welfare they'd work!" mantra actually happens or not. Meantime I'm predicting people starting to complain about an increase of beggars hanging out around the shops or freeway off ramps.

    Note, because I'm going to hazard a guess the article doesn't, this comes as Arizona is "phasing in" a $112 million dollar corporate tax cut.

    I'd be ashamed to admit that my mother would have let me starve to death if she didn't get welfare

    Nobody is saying that. Reducing welfare just means they'll reduce their standard of living. As it is you can live very well on $30,000 of free food and housing and health care. Why work.?

    Most welfare recipients are full time workers, disabled, or elderly. Only a small amount are unemployed, which accounts for less than 10% of welfare. If your company pays you $7.50 an hour, and the average cost of a 1 bedroom apartment in your city is $750, something doesn't add up. That's why the taxpayer supplements these peoples incomes.

    And in 1st world countries, it's generally frowned upon to punish the children of the poor by taking away their sustenance and ability to make it in life.
