Victim mentality. They feel they are owed this money. We are a country founded on white male privilege that has made it impossible for minorities to succeed in any form.


Are you saying that white people dont draw welfare? Because I guarantee you that a big chunk of recipients aren’t minorities.

A stigma used to be attached to accepting charity/welfare. Now people are proud of it


ODB of Wu-Tang fame was a wealthy rapper and went to collect food stamps in a stretch limo. They are definitely proud of getting free money from the government. There is a strong culture in this country that views welfare as money they are owed.

I guess it goes back to the families. I was raised to believe it was more important to work for less money than to be given more free money that you did not earn.

ODB Collecting Welfare in a Limo

Free money with no obligation. Why buy the cow when the milk is free.


Explain how one would obtain such free money? Do you think you could just go do a welfare office and just say you want to check and start sitting around and getting a check? I don't think any of you idiots understand welfare at all

re: Why would anyone want to stay on welfare?
In economics it is called the "natural rate of unemployment", it acknowledges that there is a certain percentage of capable workers that will not take a job no matter what economic benefit it may offer, i.e. a certain percentage of the population is lazy.

The same reason people want Universal Basic Income.

They are lazy.

re: Why would anyone want to stay on welfare?
Because some people are lazy. They would rather have daddy government help them scrape by instead of doing what is necessary to provide their children with a better life and promote positive morals and values. Most folks on welfare probably don’t know where their kids are half the time, and don’t care that they are failing in school. They see their children as a paycheck instead of raising them to be upstanding citizens and pushing them to succeed. Instead they teach them they are victims, with no chance of success in life, and doing so has created and ongoing epidemic of failure at the family level and a burden on tax payers.

I was under the impression that UBI was designed replace all other welfare benefits.

It also has the advantage of providing income to those living in less industrialized areas.

The issue with it (like other welfare) is that it creates an artificial floor. If a job doesn't pay x+1 while welfare pays x in benefits.

In the present and future, low level jobs are competing against welfare for workers.

Welfare entitlements kill souls! We need a Constitutional Amendment stating no politician can promise free anyting to its constituents. No government can provide anything to its people. This problem stems from the L BJ Administration and the sellout Republicans!

Don't forget kiddies: To one Political party, this isn't a "problem" at all.

The Left have built an Empire off of paying people to breed, feed and vote for the D's.

We’re enabling all of this except mental illness and maybe IQ then

I say let’s get druggies, alcoholics, ladies and those stuck in a welfare culture off welfare and back to work!?

That part of your answer has a solution and could go a long way
