Although not suprising the census bureau has determined that there are more people receiving government assitance that people that actually work. What is wrong with this picture? I realize the economy has been hard but there is no one that anyone can tell me there is not any type of work for those on the government dole. However, if in fact that is the case, an updated version of FDR's " New Deal" should be considered. If you remember your history the New Deal addressed aging infrastructe, National Parks and many other programs that provided assitance but also improved our country and Natonalism which we need now more than ever.. During the rolling out of his plan he coined the famous phrase of; " The Only Thing we Have to Fear is Fear Itself". However in our current state of affairs it would be more like:" The Only Thing We Have to Fear is Having to Work"...
There has already been previous blogs about welfare assitance being more lucrative that working lower paying jobs. Our country has lost is sense of pride and the drive to succeed. Our younger generation has no clue about the real world and drive to succeed no matter what it takes. Even when I was in the Army I would work part time to provide better for my Family. We struggled early on and as I was promoted things contined to improve. The point I am making is that I paid my dues and proved myself before I expected an increase in compensation. We now live in a age where a majority want instant gratification without proving their worth. Accountability needs to move to the forefront; there are people that genuinely need assitance however, once again no one can convince me that 46 Million need it. Thoughts?

All joking aside, reducing benifits isn't neccesarily the answer as the people that do need are being punished for those that abuse the program. The answer is oversight and compliance checks. If we can weed out the percent that really does not need the program or all of the benifit the cost of the program will reduce. Secondly, if you are forced off the dole; you have no choice but to try and find work.
