If you'd see those people that voted for Romney I promise you some of them were on welfare, got checks from the Federal Govt, etc. They also looked VERY uneducated
I have family members in this group. Most of them do work, however they are things like house painters and other general laborers. A couple of them are just strung out on drugs. One is a soon-to-be in-law who uses the system because my jackass nephew can't keep his dick in his pants and likes to drink too much gets in trouble and spends all his money in the court system. If my nephew would wake up, he is skilled enough to make $1000 a week easy and she wouldn't need an escape hatch, we think he did recently wake up...
Point being, most of these people would rather be making enough money on their own w/o food stamps etc. few of them sit on their arse all day. Hell even the drug addicted ones breed and sell pitt bulls and steal copper to make ends meet, if they would clean up their act they would be good people.
Its the other side we see gaming the system, teaching each other to game the system, getting their children put on disability etc that seems just plumb wrong. And yes, I see A LOT of them.
