Haven't read any comments but i`m guessing that some think that decreasing welfare or removing it is the answer and there is nothing wrong with jobs that don`t pay enough for one to survive.

It's about not judging people because YOU think they should be spending their money otherwise.

It`s not their money! They did nothing for it so they shouldn`t get a say in what it`s for.

[quote]Well, I don`t have a problem with that. You do? You can feed a family of 5 with a large pizza for $7. You`d be hard pressed to feed a family with $7 at a grocery store.[/quote]

LOL well there`s more than just that place I`d say you`re probably being sarcastic but there`s for example NAIL SALONS that take EBT!

In HK, we give them a home to keep them off the streets and enough money to physically survive, but if they want to live better than livestock, they need to work.

I'm not on welfare. So your criticism is misplaced.

I was not criticizing you so much as I was the mentality that people on welfare are entitled to spend that money on entertainment and luxuries.

[quote]I just think you are over generalizing and it`s tiring.[/quote]
I think you feel that people are entitled to other peoples money for non-necessities and it`s tiring.

Again, I enjoy the ability to refer to anecdotal evidence because we are discussing philosophy and not case examples. My entire point, which I believe has been made quite obvious, is that no person should feel entitled to anything other than the basic necessities.

This is in direct contrast to what you`ve said:

When you are so poor that you need someone else`s money to survive, you should not be spending money on entertainment; accept it with grace and humility.

How much does a single individual get on welfare in New York State (in most rural counties)?

$337 per month. That is your total cash grant out of which you have to pay your rent and utilities. Note: $200 of that is the housing portion of your grant. If you do not have a housing expense (rent) you do not get it.

$200 in food stamps per month.

Medicaid. Yep, you do get health insurance (and this is a substantial benefit if you are sick.)

Now we are a lefty, liberal state in New York. If you are a single individual and living in the majority of other states, you get no cash grant (yes, you get to be homeless), but you do get $200 in food stamps and medicaid.

For all you folks who claim the poor have children to get more benefits, you are right in one regard. For that extra kid you get an additional $103 per month in your cash grant (plus a food stamp grant).
