This type of mentality and facilitation is going to put the USA in the poor house sooner than later.

Listen to the logic of this welfare leach and you will see just what type of  monstrosities our government has created.

We really cannot blame the welfare leach; through the years the government has enabled these people like her to become welfare parasites.

Welfare is the organized public or private social services for the assistance of disadvantaged groups. Aid could include general Welfare payments, health care through Medicaid, food stamps, special payments for pregnant women and young mothers, and federal and state housing benefits. The Welfare system in the United States began in the 1930s, during the Great Depression. Opponents of Welfare argue that it affects work incentives.

It is a sad state of affairs when a person on welfare can make more money sitting on their welfare asses at home than if they worked.

A few years ago I was listening to the news and there was a lady on welfare being interviewed because there was a shortage of public housing in NY; she had to be put up in one of the better hotels.

The interviewer asked he how she like living in a swank hotel. As you would expect her answer was “the room service is a little slow”.
