I am not defending welfare, but I think your perception of welfare is very far off.
No, not really. You may live around low income area in Chicago, but I interact with these people day in and day out. I don't just drive by...I'm in their homes, I see the stuff they have and the stuff they don't have. There will be no furniture, but they'll have a big screen. They'll have next to nothing in their apartment, but they have an 07 Charger with 24" rims. These people don't have their priorities straight. A lot of them work, mostly to maximize their benefits.
What could you do with your paycheck when the government pays your rent and utilities?
