I Wants Me Some Welfare

I am sick and tired of supporting people who are too lazy, or too stupid to get a job. Why should I work a 40 hour a week job, pay child support, pay for health care, barely scrap by,,, when people on welfare get all kinds of free stuff.

I want me some free food.

I want me some free housing.

I want someone to help me pay my electric bill.

I want the state to pay for my kids health care.

Right now I pay close a little over $600 a month for health care and temporary disability insurance.

I have been working since 1984, and what do I have to show for it? Not too much. I may not make a lot of money, but shouldn’t I be able to keep a good percentage of what I earn?

Health insurance alone takes a HUGE bite out of my pay check. Instead of helping the working class out, taxes and health care cost continue to skyrocket.

You want to know what the problem is? I was raised with this little thing called a work ethic. A work ethic is this concept that I believe I should support myself and my family.

Up until around the 1990s there was a stigma that went along with being on welfare.

Today, it seems that people are proud to be on welfare. I gots me some welfare and food stamps,,,, and people see no issue with that.

Welfare is a form of stealing. The government takes from those that do, and gives to those that do not. Too lazy to work? No problem, here is your housing voucher, cell phone, and food stamps.
