How did we ever get to the point where someone actually believes that the unemployed of society wants to willingly subsist at poverty levels?
One third stay home, don't work, eat and drink like Royalty, getting free everything, driving nice cars, living in wonderful homes because they don't want to earn a living.
While the other two thirds, slaves all day, living no better than the evil lazies they support with their hard earned tax dollars.
It's scary to think that our political leaders, so desperate for votes have literally gotten people to repeat this nonsense.
It couldn't possibly be that the economy is so rotten because of corporations laying people off and cutting positions to increase profits, where if the gov't didn't provide some basic means, we'd have rampant crime, riots and starvation? We began a Recession 6 years ago that would've rivaled the Great Depression, if not for the gov't bailing out the very, greedy bankers/corporations that created the problem.
Are there some people abusing the system and non motivated, because of literally making almost as much off gov't assistance as working, of course. There will always be people who abuse the system, and some groups are using it more than others, but I doubt the majority of them want to be there, and are living at the same level as those with better health, opportunities, education, employment and careers.
