Thomas Jefferson once said "Any government big enough to supply all your needs, is a government big enough to take all you have"......
No more for the poor. I'm becoming poor paying for all this crap
That's why I only had 2. I can't afford more
There's enough benefits, but not to those who need it most. Our government could care less about the poor people who are starving and working their butts off.
HELL NO. Welfare cost the USA in 2011 $ 1,000,000,000,000.00 in 1 year!!!!
going poor trying to be my brothers keeper
No. We have to draw the line. Actually the line was already passed. There is not enough money to feed all of the poor. We need to start buying fishing poles and handing them out so people can catch their own fish.
Enough? IDK about this!
Some barely can make it with a little check they receive.
I know they try helping as much as they can.
The benefits offered need to be properly managed. Then the benefits will go to the right people and benefit society
Unless you are disabled, there should be some sort of community service requirement to keep collecting benefits...
No to your first question and yes to your second. In fact tax rates on the wealthy should be returned to the levels they were in the 1950s (Eisenhower era) when the upper marginal tax rate was about 85%. Back then there were still rich people, they still had all their toys, yachts, mansions, diamond jewelry for their pets etc. They were still rich. If someone is making $10 million a year they should be paying about 85% of that in taxes to the government. Who the hell needs more than $1.5 million to make it through 365 days? Someone with a $1,000 a day cocaine habit doesn't need that kind of money even.
