Alright, I notice in the last few months that there has been alot of social discord over the rights of the working taxpayer and the rights of those on public assistance. As a worker, I know I get peeved over listening to people gripe that "the government doesn't care about me/my kids/my house" while this huge spending bill goes forward to keep them happy. I also know that sometimes bad things happen to good people (it's happened to us before) just as I know there are some out there who will lie and cheat the system rather than attempt to find work.
How do you think this might work- EVERY American is given a 6 month, no questions asked medical, food, and utilities allotment to use in their lifetime. It can be taken in one month intervals or all at once, with the understanding that ONCE ITS GONE IT'S GONE - no having another baby and resetting the clock con'td

Welfare and other social entitlements were supposed to be temporary and have time limits. Look how that worked for us. We have a whole segment of society who live on social entitlements their entire lives. This would never work.
My husband and I were poor for a long time we had only neccessities and no wants. In time our incomes went up and we now have 2 years worth of living expenses in a low risk account. We waited to have kids it was not easy but so worth it. We make a 6 figure income but live on 50k a year. We save the rest and help others with part of our money. Mostly those who by no fault of their own have fallen on hard times.
Most have no clue what an actual need is. Food, shelter, and clothing. Cable, cellphones, Internet, home phone, designer labels and other crap people seem to think are needs are actually wants and are in fact wants they don't need.
