The system has FAILED.

We encourage people to find ways to beat the system, while training a generation on how to do that. Social Welfare needs a complete over haul from the way the system assist the people to the items that are able to be purchased with individual cards. We all know that welfare is not just buying food for the hungry. 


Assisting a single parent is needed under the current system. The fact though is that a single parent is not always single. The current rules have encouraged people to not marry in order to get a tax cut or college assistance. Social Welfare needs to be brought strictly back to the states to be handled as the states see fit and audited so that abuse can be limited. Too many times, a person is limited from being able to be productive in the work force in fear of loosing that little assistance received. Or the other side, where a person is working a cash job and hustling while still taking from the taxpayer's piggy bank. Time to end the game.  


Completely Over haul the SYSTEM and get people off the backs of the tax payer. Limit support to basic groceries and utilities, mortgages and rents, health assistance. We are not asking people to starve, sleep in the shutters, and die on the streets. We are asking them to live within their reach. The overhaul would need to include the individuals needs. If its a person who has lost his job to the economy, then we have a bigger issue and will more than likely see more across the board. But if its physical and/or health as the person is still able to work in a field with training then send them to be educated and back into the work force. Some supplement may be needed, but it is not the tax payers' fault for someone's personal crisis. It is a hard truth, but a necessary one.


Get the federal government out everyone's pocket trying to solve one man's issue and allow the states representatives (voted by it's people) to handle and solve social issues.


This is the power of the 10th Amendment.
