Discussion 3 week-11: Illegal Immigrants getting on Welfare
I believe if people would do some fact checking they would find out that the “illegals” add more to our economy than they take. That being said, there is a cost. So perhaps it is time that all people collecting welfare be put to work for those checks doing tasks/work for the state and local governments where they live. That is one way of making everyone who takes a government check (outside of those who have already worked all their lives and are now retired) do something for what they are receiving. This will give those who want to work but have not been able to find jobs feel better about themselves and perhaps give them a work record to build on and take the free ride away from those who don’t want to work …and you know there are some.
Those who created that motto “working is for chumps”. We are at a point where it is time to have the government step forward and be responsible for resolving some major issues. No more blank checks for anyone and no more food stamp card. Let’s get rid of that system too and have people show up to local soup kitchens and get a meal if they are hungry and bring the kids that they are collecting support for so that everyone can see that those children are actually being fed and that their parents are taking up all the resources by selling off the food for money, drugs, or alcohol.
There is plenty of work to be done in every community in the US. Let’s use that money being doled out to those folks on welfare and give them local tasks to do before they get handed that check or given that food. I know people in wheelchairs who work…. there is no reason someone who has the energy to bring children into this world but yet cant’ provide for them. No reason, those people can take some of that energy to work to feed those children as well. Work is good for the soul and will help heal the rift between those working and feeling their money taken to give to welfare and social services and those receiving the benefits of such programs.
There should be no free ride for anyone legal or illegal. We are in this thing together and need to have everyone doing something to help the causes of humanity and for the welfare moms who think they can’t afford to work outside the home because they can’t afford daycare. They should be part of that solution too.
I have long held the belief that these should be the parents that contribute work toward a community run daycare system, where they do the work to help themselves. For each child they bring into this world, they will be expected to do that much more work and donate that much more time toward their community projects. After all, these are the communities that their children will be growing up in and they should want to work to make it a wonderful place! It should be an expectation to work for it! Then regular tax payers won’t resent having their tax monies diverted to such worthwhile efforts.
