I don't see how at the current rate, the real rate of inflation is going.we all will be in the poor farm before long. Big brother will enslave us.

Barack's policies are doing a thing to change this. Why would it? Why would someone go get a job if they can receive free money from others year after year after year?

There needs to be a cap of a year or so on such assistance. It's pathetic there are lazy people who refuse to take responsibility for themselves.

And if you can't afford kids, stop having them. It shouldn't be my responsibility to go to work day after day to pay for your kids. I didn't ask you to have your kids. Stop expecting me to pay for them.

We have been fighting poverty sinc LBJ was president. Nothing has changed, and in many ways things are now worse than they were before. Handouts are fine if there is a pathway to getting off of them. However, the current system does nothing to get people off of food stamps. In many ways the shortage of funding is a good way because hunger is a good motivator to some people. Once their hunger drives them to start home businesses or to work really hard a getting a second job, they will find that they can get out of poverty.
