tell them you would rather protect the right of 40 hour a week employees to make enough to not have to depend on welfare of any kind. The democrats are creating a false argument by pumping up social programs when in fact if they would address the real issue of income inequality, we wouldn't need those programs at the funding levels they are pushing for. They would rather protect our right to beg for help from the gov than to protect our right to fair compensation. You must call them out on this, especially fellow democrats. Stop letting them play the populist card when they aren't looking out for the population. Make this an election year issue!
If you responded to this post in anger over unemployment benefits or Medicare, You need to figure out the difference between welfare and government run insurance.
If you responded to this in anger over food stamp, you need to supply corroborating material that shows anyone is trying to defund or remove them.
If you responded in anger because you assume this post was made by a republican, shame on you for falling into party politics.
Almost all of you need to understand that No Party is above fear mongering to get out of paying you more and getting more for themselves. They could have prevented this, they let it happen because every time it does, they get more powerful and we lose more of our rights and say in this country. They need this power because they fear what would happen to them if the public ever found out what they've been doing behind closed doors since the end of WWII.
