Welfare solution

July 16, 2014

I suggest a new Federal Welfare Law. This law will be based on a five year lifetime plan. One can select 5 years in a row or 5 years for one's lifetime....

Detroit is now an example of what conservative policies can do.

Chicago you must be referring to the violence which the police in Chicago blame the lack conservative gun controls from surrounding communities and states.

LOL that is your example. There was no full employment, Reagan faced an economic downturn his second term which went on to hurt Bush senior and brought a little known Governor from Arkansas to the WH.

Great examples of what conservatism can't do.

Mr. Reeder said:

"It never happens that way because conservatism doesn't help people live above the poverty line or full employment or being healthy or being prosperous. "

That is totally true, but you would have to deliberately ignore the Reagan-Bush years of prosperity and the Clinton years (after he compromised with conservatives).

I prefer to live in the reality that conservatism works to employ people and make their lives better, rather than the re-writing of history that our best years were under Carter and Obama.

Mr. Reeder:

You are correct. We do want to eliminate these programs because we want to see people living above the poverty line, fully employed, healthy and prosperous.

Thank you for supporting conservative values!

Thank you Lauri, for supporting some common-sense controls on welfare, such as citizenship requirements, criminal background checks and drug testing.

But, you must admit, some on your side refuse to allow any controls on those who receive welfare, food stamps, unemployment, disability, etc.

Wait, isn't there already a 3 year limit of direct federal assistance?

Clinton was President, he vetoed the first two GOP welfare reform bills, they finally came to a compromise and he signed the 3rd into law...

Is the author's intent to suggest we extend that 5 years?

Cave: :There are already more people not working than working in the country. The scale has tipped, and I fear it's too late for all of us unless we can bring back decent paying manufacturing jobs and soon. We're quickly becoming a nation of haves and have nots, with fewer and fewer in the middle.

I agree, and couldn't have said it better! Well put Cave, and true.

Moronic liberals, like Mr. Reeder, refuse to see generational welfare as a problem.

Then, these same liberals oppose work for welfare, drug testing or proof of citizenship.

This is how liberals manage your money.

Mr. Reeder, how can you think its not a lifestyle? A few years ago the Housing Authority announced they would no longer be taking applications as there was already a long waiting list. There is no turn over of units, no one leaves!Contact some of the churches/ places that have food pantries, its the same people who have been going there for years. Call Rescue workers and Sal. army, ask who gets thier assistance with rent/ utilities year after year, it's the same people.There are people who take full advantage of not only welfare but every charity and program there is available to low income people.Why work.

Why don't the people on welfare have to work to collect money? Remember the CCC camps that was not degrading to the recipeient. Money for nothing and your chicks for free that's the way to do it.

Print more money, thats the answer, we can just give it to everybody and things will be just great. Let anybody into the country that wants to come and give them money, housing, food stamps and health care, everything will be just fine. We need a real President and need to remove the likes of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.

If responsible people try to reform the system, the liberals will incite the takers into violence, causing the instability desired by the Alinsky radicals so they can sweep away the Constitution, Capitalism and create the nightmare "utopia" they desire.
