Keep it, but it needs SEVERE reform.
Let's let the states handle welfare how they see fit. Some states, like Cali and Texas need protections against abuse from illegal aliens, while other states might need protection for seasonal workers as construction and farming halts during winter.
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Maybe you should do away with welfare completely. Start a new program and screen the applicants very closely for eligibility....All applicants must take a drug test when they apply.......Fail it and your out.

Thank you, Quazi!
I work and pay my taxes, happy to let some of them be used for social welfare programs. I give blood freely although I've never had to use any. I've volunteered at food lines, serving, cooking and donating food. Now you don't have to do that, you are under no obligation.
Hmmmm.. Can I presume like me that you pay taxes? Now I am sure that there are many things you don't like our government doing they use our taxes to pay for. I know there are some that I don't like.
I bet there are some things you DO support our government paying for though. How about looking at it this way. Instead of thinking of your one-onehundreth of a penny in taxes that might be used for social welfare programs just pretend I paid two-onehundreths because I support them and you paid two-onehundreths to programs you do support?
There you go! Now none of YOUR tax dollars went to a program you don't support. All better now?? LOL

If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.
