Default Government Assistance

as in food stamps and welfare and the life. how do you feel about it?

personally, i think it's great. it shows that the government actually cares, somewhat, about its people. but i can't stand the people that take advantage of it. yes, it's great to have when you're going through tough times. but when you start living off of it, then it becomes a problem. people are paying taxes to help you and you're not doing a damn thing to help yourself. pisses me off. how about yall?

edit: damn. i spelled government wrong in the title

I agree with you. It's a good thing that is available to people. However I do feel it is a crutch to some. I think their should be a time limit or at least a better watch on the progression of the family status.

Like right now they make you go to some type of program for like 2 hours a day. Thats not enough at all. I feel it's given out to easy to people who don't do anything to better themselves and not enough to the people who just want a boost in life and need just a little help.

I've actually had government employees tell me how to bend the rules and find loopholes to increase benefits. I worked three jobs before my accident I got one now so I'm still paying taxes and all that. I do agree though with some of what you said. People that been on section 8 for their entire life need to get the boot. There should be limits and time restraints for everything...

I agree. There should be limits on the length people can receive these "free" benefits. People who live off of these benefits without even attempting to obtain an education and/or a job/career should not be allowed to receive future benefits and should be removed from the program(s). Unemployment, food stamps, and so on are all great entities and programs created by the government to help people in need when unfortunate circumstances arise and/or occur, but they should not go any further then that. They should only be used to help get people back on their feet and then be taken off of those programs.

I haven't paid that in about a year. Being unemployed has some ups along with its many downs.
