I disagree with your statement. While it is true that some won't to get as much as they can for free, there are also some who truly need assistance. "Go work for a living" is very difficult when the government is doing all it can to DESTROY jobs. Taking welfare is NOT shameful when it is the only means you have of providing for your family. I won't dignify the "shun beggars" remark with a response. The answers to the country's problems are not as simple as these simple-minded comments.
