Does anyone else feel like people have too many excuses why they are on Public assistance?

I just feel like everyone uses the excuse they lost their job.. TRUTH BE maybe you just dont wanna go to work. I know McDonalds is ALWAYS hiring. I mean really lets everyone take a look at who's on PA. Im sure if you really take a look they dont come from the BEST upbringing. And if you wanna say no because you are on it, then please take a step back and look in the mirror before you open fire on here. AND really I dont mean you if your husband is in the picture and he works.. Blah blah blah...

  • McDonald's workers qualify for PA too. Don't be so ignorant. PLENTY of people work that are on it. Upbringing has nothing to do with it, I know people that have college educations that have to be on it due to lack of hours. Just because you may be privileged doesn't mean everyone else is. Would you rather live in a country that have as many people that are on food stamps starving because an anti hunger program doesn't exist?

  • There is nothing wrong with assistance if you truly need it...

  • lol. You can't even spell grammar correctly. And yes, I'm "for real". Is that all you've got? I'm not getting defensive. I would just rather live in a country that tries to feed the hungry. It's called compassion.
