Hey man, the system is in place. If all you want in life is a nice car and food, then the opportunity is there. Quit your job and find one making below the poverty level according to your number of children, and you too can be living the dream.

Yeah , because AFDC(welfare), public housing & food stamps take up an entire 1 friggin % of the US budget

That whole 1% of the US friggin budget is killing us


This is how the GOP keeps the a certain ignorant part of their base angry when we have other serious budget issues:

I'm generally a conservative/libertarian guy, and I agree that we need to take a serious look at welfare reform, but other entitlement programs are going to bankrupt your kids long before wefare will.

SNAP - 78b - LINK
TANF - 17b - LINK
Public housing - 27b - LINK

So a grand total of $122b, total budget is $3.7T. Its a fricking pittance. Cut it to zero, but it wont make a dent.

The big boys of the budget are homeland security/defense, medicare/medicaid, and SS.

Thanks.

Funny the way the libs throw around the trillion dollar figure, the hundred billion dollar figure doesn't mean much.

Bottom line is expenses > income PERIOD! Balance that shite!

agreed. Cut this to zero, I don't care. But however, you are still going to have to find $1T to balance the budget. it doesn't get you very far. Every penny counts, but this is just barely a penny IMHO.

The blogs often cite this. So I can see him getting it confused. math isn't liberal's strong suit. With that said, based on the hating of nate silver, this also applies to conservatives now too.

You must be poor enough to get food stamps and welfare. Or your imagination has run away.

Don't worry they go back to their trailers and 1200 sq ft house on the other side of the tracks and live the high life.

Fact. When I managed real estate, we had some units that were Section 8 housing. One section 8 tenant in particular, drove to our office in a brand new 7-series and paid his part in cash every month.
