Thread Name: BS: Benefits/Welfare.
Subject: RE: BS: Benefits/Welfare.
Bobert- Many, perhaps most, people on welfare are simply victims of circumstances, who are at least the equals of the middle class. However, there are certainly people on welfare who use this money for drugs, alcohol, or even perfectly acceptable luxuries that aren't what they need. My objection to a monetary universal welfare was that it was more open to abuse, both by the recipients and the (private) providers.
