I'd say it's being abused by the government. Not by the people on it as much.

Yes but it's also very shitty for the people who need it

Welfare is abused. There are some who have figured out how to manipulate the system to their advantage. However, I think the majority on welfare have honest intentions and use the system as their safety net. They are struggling and need some help. They have every intention of getting off of the program as soon as they can. Saying that there is abuse is not demonizing the poor, it is stating that there are some that are taking what they don't need. Which in turn hurts more people, taking resources from those that really need assistance, have taken personal responsibility seriously and are earnestly driving toward improving their economic position.

Welfare shouldn't be a life-long benefit, really.

Mismanaged. People need assistance, but we are not helping them. Food stamps? Do liter pick up at $12 hr for them (if physically capable). Or tutor an at risk youth. Or a hundred others things. Most people can do SOMETHING. Programs like that. There will always be those so debilitated that they need direct support.

I think it's even, there's a lot of people who do abuse it, and there's a lot who need it. Sadly what I hate most about welfare, is the people who need it and can't get it because the government can't trust it.
