Mad - If the usa would cut about 70-90% of welfare we could move a few jobs back to the US. When people can live in nice homes, drive nice cars, eat more than is needed, and not work? The business people that I know can't find GOOD help now. When a food shortage appears in our grocery stores and it may not be long there will be reason for Marshal Law. Read F E M A laws & rules
Cut welfare to create jobs is a stupid idea. People on welfare spend the money, which stimulates the economy. Raise taxes on rich people, who sit on the money and invest overseas, which takes money out of the US Economy. Cut taxes on working class people, who spend the money in the USA, which stimulates the US Economy. Cut Defense Spending, which is the sole reason for the increase in the National Debt since 9-11. People who are hungry should be fed. Hungry, starving, desperate people resort to stealing. And what about the children of poor families--you want them to suffer. Social Security and Medicare do not add to the National Debt. Defense Spending does.
