The next time that someone complains to you about the fact that a portion of his tax money is spent aiding those who are disadvantaged enough to rely on welfare or food stamps or other such governmental assistance programs, begin to pay closer attention to the way that he lives his life. More often than not, his behavior will quickly begin to indicate an overarching lack of empathy for others.

  1. I disagree. Some of us, who live life with a great deal of empathy for others, simply don't believe government assistance programs are the best way of helping the disadvantaged.

  2. I think there are certain families who truly need it and use it as its suppose to be used: for help and support in a desperate financial need. They use it and its programs to for example find a job, day care, etc.

    Then there are some who need it and abuse it. There are some who get use to the system and become dependent if it and doesn't know anything else. They are getting assistance for twenty years. They don't try to do anything that will change that like getting a better job or taking the steps they need to get a better paying job. They turn down offers or opportunities because they know that if they get paid more their rent will go higher, they will get less food stamp money, etc. then they are working more and essentially having the same. So why work more and having it taken away?
