    A.) The majority in long term poverty in the USA have disabilities. (Most of them can't work) Shouldn't have to.
    Highlighting Disability / Poverty Connection, NCD Urges Congress to Alter Federal Policies that Disadvantage People with Disabilities

    B.) Then there's Retirees which get Medicare. (Obviously for the most part retirees don't work) Shouldn't have to.

    C.) Taxes for school children. (Obviously for the most part school children don't work) Shouldn't have to.

    D.) There's people which are temporarily unemployed due to things like layoffs. Who are looking for work.

    E.)( Lets not forget all the taxes which also go towards roads, military.

    Its pretty safe to say that the bulk of our taxes aren't being paid to just a bunch of lazy moochers.
    Contrary to Republican popular belief, and stunning ignorance.

    The stunning ignorance belongs to you my friend.

    I have no problem paying taxes for those who CAN'T work!

    But many many MANY people are committing welfare fraud.

    I knew a guy in high school who has become such a disgusting welfare queen I refuse to associate or even speak with him any longer. He doesn't have a single monthly bill...NOT ONE!

    No rent, electric, gas, phone, food, and the POS brags about not having filed his taxes in over 10 years.

    Ya know what his disability is?

    He can't put the bottle down!

    Welfare has utterly destroyed him! He used to rise to the occasion but only when he NEEDED to...now he no longer needs to. So he doesn't.

    His quality of life is putrid! It's sad and disgusting!

    One example, means ALL cases are.
    LMFAO.
    The data is pretty clear cut, not only is welfare as small fraction of taxes, but of those on welfare many can't work due to physical, and mental disabilities.

    Wow, are you a Protestant by any chance?

    I really am starting to think Protestants are a more simple minded, and heartless form of life.

    I'm very proud to be Catholic heritage, most Catholics are more normal.

    We don't range from Euthanasia, Transgender loving Netherlands to a bunch of War mongering people who refuse to help their fellow man in the USA South.

    President Trump has come a long way in reducing that "majority" of people who "can't work and shouldn't have to."
    :21:

    Thank you, President Trump.

    There's a difference between the unemployment rate of those seeking for work, as opposed to the actual unemployment rate of those who typically can't work, and are unemployed including retirees, physically, and mentally disabled, along with children who go to school.

    Its actually pretty difficult for people to get Social Security Disability, they often go before a court multiple times, and its even harder for them to get welfare, or section 8.

    There might be some who slip through & abuse the system, theres also people with disabilities waiting years for income, living in homeless shelters.

    I suspect you know very little about what TRULY goes on.

    I'm going to college for Mental Health, and maybe onto Art Therapy.
    Having seen the system first hand, and dealt with the Mentally Ill population, most of them DO GET Medicaid,
    but actually don't have welfare, and while many of them have Social Security Disability, they often wait years in the beginning for that supplemental income, much less Section 8.

    One example my big hairy left one!

    Welfare has utterly destroyed the black family unit (replacing the father with a gov't check).

    This has destroyed the entire black community. The kids no longer have a fundamental respect for life.

    The majority of our taxes taken by the Federal Reserve's collection wing, the IRS, is turned over to the Treasury so that the Treasury can pay the principal plus interest on that bond that the Federal Reserve bought with a check which was drawn on an account that has nothing in it when they bought those Treasury bonds from the banks who showed up to bid on portions of our national debt. Treasury bond are, of course, our national debt.

    Very little of our tax money goes to government programs.

    It's not a black or white, can or can't, issue- lets peruse this article from The American Conservative-
    Welcome to the Welfare-Warfare State

    Oh, BTW, I'm retired and draw SS and a pension- I (and others in my same category), pay a monthly premium for access to Medicare- I paid into SS from age 14- I paid into Medicare from its inception- we can afford never ending wars, with soldiers and civilians being killed, foreign and domestic and bitch about money? Are you kidding me?

    here's some more welfare/warfare writing


    The Republican Path to the Welfare/Warfare State

    Five Hundred Days of the Welfare/Warfare/Police State


    Welfare-Warfare State “Freedom” and “Patriotism”

    The MIC (Military Industrial Complex) is a jobs program- the TSA is a jobs program, ALL federal bureaucrats are under a jobs program- police are a jobs program, teachers are a jobs program, college professors who "profess" at state sponsored schools or accept federal grants are a jobs program- those salaries are all paid by taxes- now, you could argue they're beneficial, but, one man's trash is another man's treasure- war is a scourge on man kind. Period. Forcing one;s will on another, regardless of intent, is immoral and the root of ALL conflict- there is no justification for theft- there are attempts, but, in the end when you're forced to contribute to something you don't agree with then don't complain-

    Most taxes go to the bureaucrats in the swamp, who never produce anything that anyone would willingly buy.

    You really are out of your element here.
