In my opinion,


every able bodied adult should be required to perform some service in exchange for the assistance – maybe that would tease out those who truly need it and would work if they could from those that just want to be taken care of.
I did not used to feel this way, but I have seen too much of this kind of behavior from these “poor” adults and it angers me that my tax dollars are wasted this way.
As Tony says, I’d be willing to pay more in taxes if I knew that they were used wisely, but right now, I don’t believe that they are.
