Many years ago a program was developed to aid poor and needy .
Individuals as well as families in difficult or demanding situations. In the United States this program is called welfare. It is basically a form of public assistance when an individual or family believes they need help to live. As I read Charles Murray's article on Welfare, I began to develop many strong opinions on the subject. Does it do more harms, than it does good? I believe it does.
Every year, the U.S. government spends billions of dollars on national welfare. I believe this money is completely wasted. Why can't all healthy and able Americans get up every morning, go to work every day, and work their be-hinds off for a hard earned paycheck? I do every week. In essence, this wasted money encourages unemployment, and promotes laziness throughout our society. After all, as long as an American is out of a job, he or she has the opportunity to receive our tax money without raising a finger. .
So, if you"re having a hard time holding down that nine-to-five job, don't worry - just quit, and each month, you will receive a check in the mail from your caring government. And better yet, as long as you stay out of work, the money will keep coming.
The government provides welfare recipients with several enticing incentives for their "hard-earned" money. For example, the more children they bear, the more money they receive. Therefore, there's certainly no reason to alter their social activities. As one can see, I have a very strong opinion on this subject matter.
The government has started to discover several problems in the system. In my opinion, I don't know why the system was even developed in the first place For some reason, Americans are becoming dependent on this money and are not seeking jobs because they already get paid for doing nothing. This system perpetuates laziness and reliance on others. People lose their self-respect, self-esteem and confidence.
