  • Absolutley not. Just because a person needs PA does not mean that they're not a person too. I was there once... I'm not anymore, but I'll never forget what it's like to be a person that has fallen on hard times!!

  • No... I think it's a great temporary help up... Temporary being the operative word.... But it shouldn't be a handout... I I have worked with a great cause called Urban Cure... The goal is to help people build themselves up with personal responsibility and move away from government dependence. Wonderful Project. Have met some GREAT people who have changed their lives for the better by working their arses to get OFF of public assistance... Inspirations everywhere.... Truly Amazing..

  • People who need it no, people who scam the system to get it when they don't really need it yes..... and I'm not judging who needs it and who doesn't- they know who they are.

  • I wouldn't say I think I am better than anyone else. I do have a huge resentment on those who are chronic users of the system and hide behind the help not being a contribution to this country.....

  • I think gov. assistance should be a temporary thing.till things get better in your situation.I got it years ago, and then got on my feet.I don't like those who live on welfare,have kids, their kids have kids....and the cycle never ends.But I don't think I am better than them.

  • No. Some people don't understand other's situations. No one should be ashamed.
