    A New Concept in Handling Welfare



    1. If the government got out of the business of welfare spending, do you have any idea how much our taxes would go down? Welfare consists of the fourth largest expenditure of our government, at $679.2 Billion annually. How would our taxes go down if that expenditure went away completely? Enormous tax cuts for all!


    2. If welfare would be considered a Charity as in American Red Cross, serviced by the states via a privatized company as a ”for profit” entity , it could be done.

    3. Religious, organizations, corporations, unions, charities, philanthropists, private individuals would donate through their taxes as tax credits for any amount designated, and it would be sent to that state that the donator lived or established their residence. For businesses overseas, the home office would designate what state should receive the donation. Everyone would make use of the tax advantage because their donation comes right off their tax bill.

    4. States would write their own requirements for welfare, most conforming to the “work first, education second and fiscal hand up, third. A two year limit on welfare for able bodied recipients would encourage those to seek employment or further their skills to find employment in the time they have on the welfare rolls..

    5. No longer would tax payers be forced to participate on paying for welfare through their taxes. But find an incentive on their own tax bill by finding a credit. And the government who has handled the welfare problem with fraud and waste and political ammunition would be set aside.

    6. This would include welfare, ADC, food stamps, and rent subsidizing. Only the infirmed and elderly would be exempt from the requirements and no executive order could overturn the requirements of each state’s mandate.

    7. Private enterprise has always proven to be the most effective managers of money. It’s time we get the waste and fraud out of welfare.

    I always thought it would be a good idea to put these welfare clowns to work.... Only problem is the labor unions would go batshit crazy because that would just be cutting into their racket...

    I do like the idea of privatizing welfare - hell, that would create jobs..

    If "Private enterprise has always proven to be the most effective managers of money." why do we always have to bail them out?

    "always have to bail them out?"

    Really - you bailed out the banks jackass, oh and then seized GM...

    You act like you're bailing out main street....

    My position was let the banks fail and let GM fail....

    I strongly support charity.... colloquially, 'welfare.'

    The simplest and most dramatic change would be to define poverty correctly.

    It is no home, no heat, no food.

    It is not 'having a bit less than everyone else.'

    Seems you are not well versed on the meaning of 'corporatism.'

    Consult a library near you.

    sure... let poor people starve.

    "welfare" spending is a drop in the bucket. cut the military budget... raise taxes on people who can afford it a couple of points.

    then talk to me about starving people.

    What don't you understand about "not for profit?"

    There are plenty of not for profit organizations in the private sector...

    The private sector just happens to be more efficient than our government .... Furthermore it would keep government from using welfare as a incentive to vote democrat...

    Democrats don't care how much they spend or how much they waste - no to them they can either raise taxes or print more money....

    The privatization of welfare would put an end to all of that corruption and fraud..
