It doesnt sound ‘ crude’. Its liberal nonsense. The abuses of the welfare system are well documented. Generational welfare as a lifestyle has become the norm- we are seeing 3rd generation welfare families. The ‘ safety net had become a lifestyle.
People in America, even poor and working class people have a problem with giving money to the poor but have zero problems with giving wealthy people more.
My family was super poor when I was a kid. Food was scarce for years. This artical spot lights the cruelty that goes along with poverty perfectly.
Now the people who are the most vulnerable in our country are about to feel the brunt of the recent tax give away! The republicans will want to cut programs that help the poor, elderly, and sick to pay for their give away! Soon to emerge will be the religious zealots telling those in need to rely on their Gods to meet their needs. There was a saying by those religions, the during the 80's, "It is better to give than to receive". Sad.
They get cash. Healthcare, foodstamps, housing, head start, wic, phones, school breakfast, lunch, dental, eye care and more. Why behave as if the poor get no aid in America?
100 years ago we didn't have the immoral people that we have today. Parents who care less about their families and children , and care more about a about a new wardrobe or an iPhone.
That was also a time when parents put their kids before their need for cigarettes, booze or Plasma TV's and Sky. It's a cruel world.
If only we gave to the poor a fraction of what we just gave to the rich, imagine the possibilities for improving our collective communities!
When a country gets to the point where you have more people voting for a living than working for a living it just a matter of time before its economy collapses.
When I hear someone say they hate or blame corporations I thing they must really hate the Federal Reserve Bank's since their the richest most powerful corporation in the world.
