"I am all for helping the poor, but must do so by helping the poor help themselves." -Ben Franklin

I feel like if you want a great life, work your ass off for it. You should be able to afford a small house, used car, and insurance on a 30/hr a week job, if that is your choice. But you dont do that how socialism seems to like doing it- by taxing a ton out of your working class. You do that by driving down the cost of living.

I dont think this should be achieved by taxing others to give to the poor. I would rather take my income tax and support someone i know and love with it rather than giving it over to a government who is going to squander it.

I wont say I'm an expert, but Benny F. sums up how i feel very well.
