 Public assistance such as FS, WIC, Medicare, Welfare

Do you think the programs work? Would you change things about them if you could?

 These programs are great for those who truly need and use the system correctly.  However, the system has its flaws and therefore there are those who abuse it.

I think it can work. But i do think some changes should be made. Like you should have kids or have serious med issues... Not refuse to work and get food and med aid! I was preg with my 2ed girl and couldn't get much, but my cousin (3 yrs younger than me with out kids, no job, live in gf that worked) and she got everything! I've seen families at the daycare I work at that needed help and couldn't get it.

Then again, its my opinion.

I definitely agree that by accepting that help, you are putting your life in the hands of the government. I wish people would think about that when they choose to "abuse" the system.

I think people on these programs are taking advantage of the system. It's not the original intention of the system ....or IS it?

I'm a conspiracy theorist, I admit it. JFK once said "There is a plan to enslave the American people and I plan to expose it." One week later he was shot and killed.

Coincidence? 

I think not. 

By people relying on their government to live, the government has a hold over them and they don't even know it.

i think they work. but of course you also have those that abuse the system. There are times when people need the help & i see nothing wrong w/ that.
