Why are most of the states adopting a policy of raising the acceptable income level for qualifying for welfare and other government assistance programs when the system is already going bankrupt? Doesn't this directly conflict with any solution to unemployment? Instead of doing whatever it takes to create more jobs, we are just going to make it easier to get welfare?!?!? This is insanity!! Clearly, there is no desire from the government to halt this, as 38 states have adopted the policy without any difficulty. This sounds like a vicious circle to me. We are losing thousands of jobs (contributing taxpayers) while the money (or non-existing money) paid in by those who are still working is being handed out to people paying with food stamps and then climbing into a Denali in the parking lot!! I have heard several people tell me that they get more money from welfare and unemployment than they would working a full-time job. And now, with Obamacare you don't even have to work for a company that provides benefits. As a matter of fact, there is already speculation that companies are going to start dropping insurance beneifts all together.
So, what do we do about this problem? Answer...JOBS!!! It's very simple. Instead of passing Obamacare, they should have been putting the skids to "free trade". Now instead of bringing jobs back to America, we are condoning a socialistic society that will be controlled by the government. This is the intent of the Feds, as they make most of our countries decisions as it is.
