Well, who would have ever guessed it? When you stop being insulting we can actually find things we mostly agree on, I don't believe that able bodied and minded people should be drawing government aid. Welfare should be workfare, unemployment insurance should be connected to job training. We need to provide good role models "working parents" for the next generation, we need to make sure that our policies don't just fuel another generation of children that believe that sitting around drawing a check is the way life is along with that we have to make sure that those children born into poverty and raised in poverty have at least the basic needs required to grow healthy body and mind, we have to make sure that educational opportunities are available to all.My policies would put the poor who truly wanted to work and give back off the street. However, those seeking a free ride would get shoved into the gutter to hopefully die quietly and without a scene. Welfare reform needs an overhaul like nothing else. You receive money, you also work somehow - either on your own, or some form of community service. Random, mandatory drug tests. Either birth control is required, or an understanding is put in place that if you get pregnant, your assistance is immediately and irrevocably terminated.
I would help people who help themselves. Anyone looking to skate on another's work...they can be shot in the street, for all I care. They're a burden to real humans, and I consider them subhuman crap.
