A lot of you people here on GLP seem to think people on welfare(the vets, the disabled, the old, people who make under 20k) are the problem. But there is no outrage or anger for the companies who make billions yet find ways to stick their hands in the pot. When you come one here and make threads about people who receive "handouts" when most of them actually need all the help they can get but fail to mention companies who exploit gov assistants you look like a bunch of selective problem solving hypocrite. How can you sit behind your screen and bash these people yet turn the other way at the real problem. Its like the cop who would rather chase down someone peeing in an ally instead of the guy mugging down the street. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 4496880
We need to do better.
Let me start "doing better" by dissecting your sentence in bold.
Most people support helping wounded vets, including those with mental illness from service.
Most people support helping truly disabled people to survive.
Most people support Social Security since it's actually not welfare; you pay in, you get back -- now less than you paid in, but hopefully something you can survive on.
People who make under 20k, well that includes a number of different categories, including the traditional people we do not want to help (think Welfare Queens).
Why did you avoid talking about the real problem and roll it into the innocent sounding category "people who make under 20K"? Well, because you're trying to obscure the issue and make people forget about it.
