    I would phase it out entirely. Since government welfare is implemented through the initiation of aggression*, I oppose it on ethical grounds and would thus advocate for its repeal.

    * Violation of or damage to another person's body; or trespass, damage, or taking of something owned by another.

    It's unconstitutional. It should be eliminated completely.

    Compared to what we have now? Yes. If we are not promoting ways to grow the individual and economy, then it will eventually become a free-for-all at some point in time anyway...

    If its so terrible, why has it remained for over 80 years now? We've had all sorts of different leaders during those 8 decades.

    I guess my most burning question is why do you object to it?
