The system is screwed up. I see it on a daily basis and it makes me sick. People cheating, lieing and abusing the system cause they are lazy and don't want to work or do much to get by. Wish they would make it harder for people to get the aid they need or a way to make sure they are using it what it is meant for. No wonder why each state and even the government is saying they are losing money and/or going in or are in debt. They are handing out free money to people.
I have seen people who could really need the help or aid, but are turned away and then some jackass who doesnt really need it get it.
99% of the problem IMHO lies with allowing companies to fund election campaigns
Elections shouldn't be funded by private money not even the candidates.
Let some-one collect 100.000 signatures to be able to run and then give them 1 million to fund their election with government money.
I'm going to say what I say in every healthcare or socialism thread. The main 'problem' with this country and applying the rules of other countries is the fact that the USA has an extremely heterozygous population. Moreso than any other nation. Socialism works to certain extents in Canada and Europe because basically everyone is the same and wants the same things. So as long as we're a melting pot, socialism will not work.
That being said, welfare should be temporary. 6 months. And you absolutely should have to pass a drug test to get it. Go look at Appalachia and tell me that mandatory drug tests for their aid wouldn't begin to start to solve some of the problems there.
It's the "world ruling elite" who prep and control the balance of governance in America and around the world. There's plenty of info out there on this subject.
