Welfare is set up to help those in need. It is not set up to take care of the individual forever. Not everyone is accepted for welfare. Certain requirements are set up for the individual to meet. If you don't meet them, you are done. Welfare cuts you off. Some people, however, clearly abuse the program. I had to use the system once and I had two jobs at the time. I used welfare for food for three months and then I was done. I continued to bust my butt and get things done so I would never need it again and so far so good!  Have you ever seen anyone in Washington go this crazy if their welfare was cut off?
