No, I don't mean terminated. I think unemployment benefits are essential. I do think that food stamps are mostly not necessary. I think businesses should be paying a living wage in the first place. I'm not so sure about money for kids. I think if people decide to have kids they have to take into consideration how much this will cost. However I do think there are kids out there who need help because parents can be lousy, which is why I advocate better education for teaching kids how to act like adults, by teaching them what to expect in relationships, marriage, parenthood etc. If you look at what happened in the past, you might realize why welfare exists now. You could simply lose your job, as no fault of your own but the fault of people who will never go hungry, and then that could lead to the break up of everything, whereas a few monthly payments from welfare while you're not working, which you've paid into anyway, will tide you over, keep your family together. It's funny how the right say things like family is really important, and then devise many ways to destroy poor families.
