    What are your opinions on welfare management? Several mainstream options of handling welfare are in the poll.

    Re: Welfare

    I'm not sure TBH, I do believe that Welfare should be tied to some kind of work program/education program in order to improve the lives of the people on welfare so that they can eventually get out of the program.

    Re: Welfare

    It depends upon the kind of country. In capitalism, it should be left to the states(still leaving the fed some power to step in, if need be), but when the main social structure is communes, this kind of assistance should be something the community does inherently.

    I think that all people should have government subsidized access to food, housing, education, transportation, and medical care regardless of how much income they personally earn.

    EDIT: This is as long as they stay employed or are self-employed.

    And this will be separate from unemployment insurance which can be used when they are not currently employed, and it will be paid into individual accounts paid into with every paycheck that they can withdraw from only when not currently employed.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Re: Welfare

    There should be federal standards to make sure tha it isn't effectively done away with, but it should be mainly left up to the states. That's how it will run the most efficiently

    Feds and states. There should be certain standards set by the federal government and then states can choose the specific policies according to their population within those standards.

    Welfare

    I don't see why the federal government is involved at all.

    Just curious, but please list all government programs which YOU define as welfare or welfare programs.

    To ensure that the system runs smoothly. I could easily see a state being biased in how the welfare is distributed, especially if powers went down to local. The area that I live in is still quite racist and it would be quite feasible for our local government to find a way to strip others of welfare.
