I, too, am against the abuse of the system....but keep in mind, my fellow Americans, that many people on welfare genuinely need it due to perhaps loss of income or some other tragedy. Their not all lazy bums. I know this because I was one of those people who lost his job, and still had my assets - which, by the way, do not simply disappear. Imagine how embarrassing it is to pull up to the welfare office driving a Hummer. Welfare is not fun, and now that I found a job, I am glad to pull out of that system. But I am grateful that it was there for me as my two young children have needs I could not meet by myself while unemployed.
