2. Helping the most vulnerable is a laudable goal. However, that is not what our welfare state is designed to do. It provides much more than what is necessary and underprovides to others. I personally know of individuals who have not work for years, if ever, and still have a flat screen TV bigger than my TV; kids who have portable game consoles, cell phones, etc. They live in a 3 bedroom apartment so everyone has their own room. That is insane when the father could be working, but claims disability because he is overweight.
