But seriously why would you make a comment like this as your facebook status:
_______ is off to work....all of the millions of unemployeed Americans (I use that term loosely) on wellfare are relying on me!
I know, some people abuse the system, but why would anyone lump every unemployed person together in one category, and proceed to make a comment about them like that. I know a lot of people who are out of a job because they were working at the same job for years when their companies closed and are now unable to find more work. I do not have to rely on welfare, thankfully we are doing okay, but I do not mind and my husband does not mind, a few of our dollars going to help someone else. I mean seriously, how many of you would ever post that on your FB status?

I lost my job in May and though I was fiscally responsible while I had a job to save enough money to live off of for a while, most people don't save any money and need to be on welfare to survive. Some people didn't make enough to save any money as well. Like you said, we cannot all be lumped. That is a very selfish thing for that person to have said. When I was working I was hoping I paid enough in taxes to help at least one family keep their house and put food on the table. I feel like while some people abuse the system, others just fall short and need a hand up for a little while until they are back on their feet.
