I wish i could have a way to convey things on the internet so that people know i'm not trying to insult them or something like that.
But i believe you'll be hard pressed to find someone who says the things Benzy is saying that won't also be one of the first to help those truly in need.
But i also believe that the 50 or so percent of americans who are only collectively paying 3 percent of the collected taxes are not ALL stricken with a debilitating illness or injury. Those that are deserve a life time of assistance to lead a comfortable life. Those that aren't deserve an education and an opportunity, make of it what you will.
As undesirable of an existence as it may be to most, there are people who choose to live a government subsidized lifestyle. I see it in my work all the time, my wife audits non for profits for her work and sees it, as well as hears it from her clients. She also serves on a board of directors for a NFP. It's not something we're making up and at least in our neck of the woods the amount of people who are becoming complacent enough to live that way is increasing exponentially.
