Yup, its totally not their fault for having kids they couldn't afford when places like the local health office or planned parenthood are available to them free of charge. It's not their fault that they failed to take advantage of getting an education through grants and scholarships or learning a trade that would allow them to support themselves and their family. 

Instead, lets blame other people. People who worked hard for their education, work hard at their job, and are able to pay their bills because they made smart decisions.... yup, makes perfect sense.

those working full time and getting assistance is not the issue in fact the more you work the less assistance you qualify for.

The problem with our system is that many people are making more money off government assistance then they are in their jobs which makes it makes it hard for them to get work because as soon as they start making more income the government assistance declines and they are suddenly working harder and yet struggling to pay bills and feed the family even more then when they were not working... it's just stupid.....

That's why we need to raise minimum wage. People want everyone to get off assistance and pay their own way but also don't want minimum wage to be raised or college and health care to be free/affordable.

Agreed. And in many states you have to have a job to qualify for assistance.  So.
