Social programs are killing this country slowly but surely. Far too many people are becoming dependent on other people to provide for their needs. It is not other people’s responsibility to care for them. They need to learn to care for themselves. Welfare is needed to help but it needs a way to force people to want to get off welfare. Until that happens welfare will continue to grow and the governments will continue to go more broke. It is not just the US it is happening around the world. Even the Romans found out it was a problem. It is like having a child at home. If you make life easy for them and provide everything, they will never leave home. You have to balance supporting them and making it uneasy to help them out the door and become responsible for themselves.
