Most people who post rants about welfare don’t really know what the hell they’re talking about. Like there is some big “welfare office” where people can just sign up and get free food, housing, money, etc. and just “live off the government.” No, just no.
And if you want to get really specific “welfare” same as “food stamps” haven’t existed since the 90s because it had such a negative connotation among middle & upperclass whites that they made many sweeping changes (including the names) to appease people whose lives aren’t even affected by these programs/agencies.
When you talk about cutting “welfare” or being against it do you even really know what specific services you think you are opposed to? Is it child care vouchers so low-income parents can go to work? Is it subsidized (usually substandard) housing that ensures that every homeless shelter & park bench isn’t filled to the max? Is it TANF that overwhelming helps single mothers & children with monthly bills, as well as helps to ensure child support is being payed? Or is it SNAP or WIC which have been shown time and time again to primarily feed children?
Say it again, girl.
