My Time at Walmart: Why We Need Serious Welfare Reform I posted the above article containing rampant abuse of entitlement programs as an illustration of a fundamental difference in perception between liberals and conservatives when it comes to entitlement programs. What both sides agree on is that there isn't any thing wrong and government indeed should help those that truly can't help themselves or need a little TEMPORARY assistance. The difference between liberals and conservatives is of the people on welfare, how many of the aformentioned are there? Is it a majority of welfare system (programs like food stamps, WIC, unemployment insurance, etc.) collectors that truly can't do better in life or is it mainly moochers who are conciously incorrectly prioritizing? The fact is libs, it's the later as this case study shows. Our welfare rolls across the nation are filled predominantly with people who can, but will not help themselves. The system enables that behavior, it does not prevent it. All of our entitlement programs need to be cut drastically if we really want to prevent poverty in America as well as start cutting our debt.
