    Well, right now people are unemployed and are hurting. If they don't apply for welfare, they may start engaging in criminal activity. It cost the government a whole lot more
    to lock someone up,as compared to given them food stamps, and welfare payment.
    To lock someone up for a year $100,000.00 welfare for a year $2,375.00
    You do the math.

    Oh for Pete's sakes.

    That doesn't even deserve an answer, except the standard "You're a fucking idiot."

    Although I'd like to ask...if lack of welfare is the reason for criminality...why is it that welfare communities have higher crime rates than anywhere else?

    Before you go using profanity,you need to look at the current economic downturn statistics.
    Crime is on the increase , and it can be directly attributed to our current economic situation.

    Cutting welfare during a time of enormous propserity made good sense.

    Making it impossible for those who NOW need welfare not to get it makes ZERO sense since it's a drop dead certainty that millions of people who had been working are NOT going to find jobs anytime soon.

    Why not 30 or 40

    I swear to god these idiot Liberals think the government just makes money appear out of thin air. They treat Government like it is a bottomless well of funds to support their many noble ideas. The only solutions they ever come up with, revolve around Government spending. They have never even heard of a market solution. Why would they bother learning about it, in their world the Government is the answer to ever question.

    Why do you think we Conservatives are always saying you Libs want to grow government until in controls our lives? Because when ever there is any problem, your solution is to spend money, and grow the government.

    You can not even grasp simple Math. We CAN NOT KEEP SPENDING LIKE THIS.

    I am sure they will try and Blame it all on Bush when our Currency tanks and the Nation collapses, But we will all know who is really to blame.

    STOP THE WASTEFUL SPENDING NOW!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am a republican, and I don't support Tax cuts. I agree with you the Government can not keep spending like they are, the current rate.These Billions will have to been replenished
    someday.

    But the Government has to act, to avert a Global economic catastrophe.That could spark
    social conflict, or even a war.!?

    I feel the Government needs to raise taxes now, as a means of balancing the Federal budget, and to secure economic solvency for the Future of America.
    Tax cuts again, by this administration, will only leed to some future economic disaster
    and nightmare.

    The Federal government,with these "Tax Cuts" is setting itself up for a future Economic disaster.

    Make you a deal--once they cut all the wasteful spending out of the government I'll consider it.
