Do you consider social security for disabled or elderly public assistance? I don't. In order to qualify for SSDI or social security (for elderly-ssi is a different program) one must of had to work to get it.

My uncle is on SSI he has never worked a legitimate day in his life nor paid in any taxes. What he gets to me is Public Assistance. He is healthy and capable of working how he gets SSI is beyond me. I call him the welfare king and won't even have much to do with him. I have turned him in a couple times since he works full time under the table nothing is done. He paid cash for a brand new truck it is in his girlfriends name. He is a PA abuser.

I think there is waste, abuse, and a corrupt system that needs to be reformed. While the intent is for it NOT to be entitlement but rather savings~it has, over the course of its' history, taken some entitlement turns for the worse... IMO, Nobody will reform it because if they open that can of worms, they will lose votes. Which is pretty much what will happen to health care if ObamaCrapCare is passed/signed.
