Welfare. Yup again.

Now before anyone says anything, I am not against welfare.  I think it needs to be redone. The elderly and disabled who only have disability or ss, should not have that income counted.  They only get very little money and then because their disiability and ss gets counted as income, they only get $100-140 for food stamps.  This is uncalled for and we should feel ashamed.  Did you know that there are 103 million people on some form of welfare? that only 101 million people pay taxes.  ( actual taxes where they get nothing back, no EIC) this is unsustainable. These numbers were on Fox Business News.

But how much can you really trust FOX. I don't know about them honestly. I would trust another news source before them.

Find an article with numbers then.  Bbc? France news? Asian Squawk Box?

I work with a man who has a mental disability. On top of kidney and heart failure. He is on oxygen 24/7 has a trek and dialysis 4 days a week for 5 hours at a time. He gets 700$ a month in SS and 100$ a month in fs. It is ridiclous. How can they expect someone to live off of 800$ a month? :/
