please try to write a honest answer to this question with out being rude thanks.
here is the question with the way that the economy is and how it will get worse before it gets better how come so many people bash others for using government assistance to get by at this time? knowing what you know about this economy don't you think that you should cut people some slack. even those with good paying jobs and college degrees are being laid off left and right.
I don't have a problem (or look down on) someone who get government assistants because they are having hard times, like being laid off. What I have a problem with are the people who get government assistants for years because they are to damn lazy to get off their ass and get a job. If you've worked and paid your taxes and loose your job I think you deserve to get help from the government when you really need it, you've paid for it. But I know people who have never worked a day in their life and never paid taxes. If you don't contribute to the system then you shouldn't be allowed to use it.

That's not really the why people have a problem with it. If you think about it, there are a majority of people that will use PA just because they can even if it means they can keep their cell phones, cable internet/tv etc. That is not what I call needing pa. People seem to think they "deserve" things they can't afford. Posts about selling foodstamps, buying needless things with cash assistance and all kinds of crap. It was the people that thought they "deserved" better things that they could not afford that got us into this mess to begin with. So why in the world should we be ok with more and more people using it if there is not an absolute need for it? Just because you qualify for it doesn't mean you should use it. It's time for people to take responsibility for their own actions and choices.

"For example, the woman who begged Obama for a house. Well, she got one. She's been living rent free in a nice house for MONTHS. Yet, she hasn't saved a dime or gotten a job. "
