Why are most Republicans

Angry about people on assistance? It's not like you are never not going to get taxes taken out of your check, so why get upset that your taxes are feeding hungry children? Aside from finding things such as schools and infrastructure, what would you rather your tax dollars go to? I haven't been on assistance since I was 18 years old and I'm 24 now.. it still doesn't bother me.

Yeah there are people that abuse the system and it may need a little reform, but there are plenty of people that aren't abusing it. This economy makes it so hard to get ahead. It sucks. Everyone has a different situation and I'm sure most are not proud to be on assistance.

Btw, I do not identify as a democrat. This was just my observation in general regarding republicans.

Taxes are illegal. They were only meant for the war, however they were never repealed. I don't have a problem with my tax dollars going to help people. I have a problem that 98% of our tax dollars go to big banks for them to squander.

Most I know only care about the well being of the fetus in the mothers uterus. Once it is out, they bitch about their tax dollars feeding them and housing them... and providing the mother with free birth control to prevent more kids.

Taxes are for much more than war.

You still need a road to drive on after the war is over...

There are also plenty of Democrats who are equally as upset with how our welfare system is handled and how many are abusing it.

It's no longer an issue about political party forgiveness or scorn. Yet it's also no longer just about "feeding hungry children." 

It's about an entitlement system in dire need of an overhaul to make it a little more fair for both tax payers (some of which are those on who receive one or more forms of welfare) and those who sincerely need the help.

The anger really isn't directed at those who receive the assistance as much as it is toward the system itself. Those who will insult and belittle others who receive assistance are individuals who will insult and belittle just about anything they don't agree with.
