Obama-Care will eventually be free for the half that lives off of the government.
So if food, housing, child care, and health care is provided - what's left ?
Free college ?
Free car ?
Cell phone ? (already taken care of)
I guess the Socialist Libs still have a ways to go before their base is totally dependent on the government.
With the decline in real wages for most americans, and the part timing of our workforce, the government has to step in to subsidize these fallen paychecks. And that includes everything from healthcare to food stamps. If you want outsourcing, cheap labor at home and huge profits due to declining costs at companies, someone has to pay for the corporate savings. Outside of corporate in the real world, there is no such thing as a free lunch,
If you go out in to the world, you find countries and cultures of hungry people. People hungry to have a job and want to succeed. They want their companies/organizations to succeed - they want their country ro succeed. They push their children in school to be the best. When you get in their taxis, they are spotless - they want to be the very best at what they do. I can tell from these posts that a lot of people in this country have no drive to succeed. They are giving up. Why ? I guess because someone is telling you that big corporations and rich people have destroyed opportunities for you. It is sad because working hard and creating wealth is such a positive experience !
The corporatists destroyed the working class with open borders, illegal workers, offshoring, free trade that only benefits big business, now they grouse about throwing their victims a few food stamps to stay alive. The new motto of the Republican Party is: let them eat cake, really not very smart.
What's left? You are not very aware of what all welfare provides.
Already free college and free voc. ed.
Free car--welfare provides transportation.
Since they don't have to work-----on a perpetual vacation.
What is sad, being on welfare gives you a much better life style than you can have working.
I believe in welfare, but I do not believe on my dollar you should have more than me working.
