Welfare Needs to Come To An End
I'm a hard working woman and my boyfriend is a hardworking man. Everything that we have, we've bought with the money that we've earned through work and savings. Nothing has been given to us and we don't ask for handouts. We don't make 100k a year, still we make enough to get by. We don't have children because as responsible human beings, we know not to reproduce life if we cannot financially care for them. I was born in Thailand but, moved here to the United States when I was a year old and became a citizen. My parents did not speak english but, still, they managed to find work and put food on the table and clothes on our backs. Our family fell on some hard times and my mom would have to go to the local food banks in town just to make it through the month sometimes. One thing neither one of my parents ever did, was turn to the system and milk them for money. Money that comes from hardworking tax payers such as you and I. They were ashamed of the idea of having to tell their children that they were too lazy to haul their behinds out of bed to make an honest dollar. Now as an adult with many responsibilities and bills of my own, I despise people who sit at home milking money out of the government. It was your decision to not get an education, not to practive safe sex, to get pregnant, to have ten kids that you cannot financially care for...So why is it our responsility as tax payers, to support your lazy behind and that of your ten children? If you were born in America, Land of Opportunity, you should not be on Welfare! Plain and simple! I'll tell you something else, I think the only reason a majority of african american and hispanic voters voted for Obama is because they hoped that he continues to Prolong Welfare and keep the lazy even lazier. Well congrats because he's going to be doing exactly that. Helping the lazy and taking advantage of the hardworking individuals like myself. I read a comment from someone who said that they didn't think it was fair that people who were living on welfare receive a tax return or a stimulus rebate check. I completely agree with that statement and support that 100 percent. I mean why should you even be allowed to receive a return if you never worked for that money? Honest to God, it's a complete scam! Okay, I can understand if you work for a living and your monthly income still isn't covering all expenses so you ask for a little help to put food on the table. That I find acceptable but, to the rest of you lazy, worthless human beings who are passing on the logic to your kids that it's okay to give up on your education because the government will pay your way as long as you dont stop popping out kids, you're pathetic! I think it's about High time that the Government stops ripping us hard working taxpayers off and letting the Baby Bloomers live off of us. Welfare needs to end! You hear that Governor, stop making us support the lazy people who don't want to help themselves!
