Even if it were true, so what? So a few people abuse the system. That doesn't invalidate the millions it helps legitimately every year. That doesn't lessen the positive impact it has on the community.

It seems the main problem conservatives have with social programs always boils down to sour grapes.
"WAAHH. Someone who doesn't make as much as me is getting the same access to health care as I do! WAAHHHH! I wanna be SPECIAL and have the system treat me BETTER than other people!"

If a poor person gets a free bologna sandwich, that doesn't make your filet mignon any less delicious, juicy, or expensive. It also doesn't make the poor person's back-breaking, low-paying job any more cushy than your high-paying, sit-on-your-ass-all-day job.

Like the woman whose son turned 18, so she got pregnant so she could stay on welfare.
That's not just abuse of the system, it's child abuse.

Exactly!  Everyone knows that the only legitimate news has to come through AP!   Everything else is Republican lies and fairy tales.


Either that or don't trust trashy tabloids like The Sun.

Well, that does it.  I used to support social services for people that couldn't afford them.  But if every single person using them is exactly like this person The Sun made up to infuriate me, there's no way I can support them now.

Slaxl: Why do these people proudly announce their brazenness to the Sun?


Because none of it is true.
