When will people realize, we CAN NOT sustain this spending
..The foundation and the future of this nation depends on getting this under control..
8 years ago we had 28m on food stamps now we have 44m
Forget the government give away
Think about the tax payer.
This is not realistic. Get programs back to the most needy of our people!

What's the answer then? As automation and AI take over the workplace, first with blue collar and later with white collar jobs, it will only get significantly worse. There are not going to be enough jobs to go around.

People will be working, you want to make sure you are one of them in the new economy.

Work is a dying profession. How will the "privileged" continue to be important? Centuries ago, wealth was determined by the amount of land you owned and the number of "peons" living in your land and supporting you. Then it was land and money with the peons progressively thinking they were "free", but still working for the land and/or business. When all jobs go away, it will still be the "haves" and the "have nots", but the "haves" better be prepared to support the "have nots".

By increasing things totally funded by government like building an unnecessary wall , unneeded military apparatus , infrastructure, is government welfare for the industrial complex - so taxpayers still on hook but paying for minority of people already possessing good jobs

Killing people is Trump's goal? When he said he was the only Republican not promising to cut Medicaid/Medicare?
