    Personally, I have no tolerance for people telling me I have an obligation towards them.
    I would like to think this would be a type of proto-utilitarian attitude.

    It's not force it's offering. Just as one chooses to accept an offer of government assistance one can choose to reject it and live as they wish.

    None of them, it is surprising how many people will go to work when they aren't expecting a check

    None of the above.



    I support tax payer funded assistance for the poor with some restrictions. I do not support corporate welfare and foreign aid.
    Any of them under the right circumstances, but consistently only the first.

    P.S. I'll give my opinion later but my point that partisanship adds sanity to our government is the most important thing at this moment in history.

    The topic is your opinion of welfare.

    Pay $628 per month to everybody who files a tax return regardless of their income. Make minimum wage $1,256 per month. This gives everybody a minimum standard of living regardless of their laziness but it's half of minimum wage. These are simplistic numbers but everybody should have a minimum standard of living. If you want to use that money to buy food, drugs, a house, a go-cart, lottery tickets or diapers it would be nobody's business. Nobody is in poverty even if they are unable or unwilling to work. (Half of the world's population lives on $2 per day or $730 per year.) The federal government shouldn't be spending any money to prop up higher education either. The federal government should fully fund K-12 education.

    Other than that there should be no federal run welfare programs. States and counties are better equipped to target the individual needs of their community. Every community is different.

    Why does welfare always have to be a federal program?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Because only at the federal level do we have the ability to borrow and print all the money we need to buy those votes spend on welfare.
