I am simply curious to know what others think of people who are using government assistance when it comes to putting food on the table; do you think these people need the help in a time of need, or do you think they are simply lazy and don't deserve the help? There are many negative opinions out there on this subject. What are yours?Answer Question

I think if you are an actual American citizen you should have every right to getting assistance when you need it. I live in the Southwest close to the border and it truly bugs the hell out of me when I see an illegal family with false identification getting all kinds of assistance and on the other side I see American citizens get turned down. I've also seen families where they get government housing and food, and anything else they can take and they turn around use the money they make from their jobs to pay for their drugs!! I sometimes wish you had to go through a random drug screening just to get your assistance. It would help eliminate the people that are obviously using their own personal money for something that is a waste and could be putting it towards food or housing.I also agree that people shouldn't bee on assistance for any extended period of time.

I'm pretty much with the majority on this one. If you need them use them if you abuse them get off them. I am on them right now because DH is in school and his hour got cut back. But I plan to get a second job in the fall when the kiddos start school so I can get off them. I HATE being on them people tend to look down on you for having them. And anon 1213 I agree they should do random drug screenings.
