If you think it is the Life of Riley why not go on public assistance? I doubt anyone would see being on 'welfare' as a fun joy ride.
I know some folks struggling to make ends meet, but that doesn't mean they have no money if they are on food stamps. It also doesn't mean they can't go out once a month to a club. It also doesn't mean many folks showed up with food stamps cards.
Mostly what all this means is a few of the usual suspects have a very bigoted view on life.
Can imagine what some would type if someone down El Paso way held a 'Bring Your Fake SS card' night...
