There was and is a reasonable argument for government to offer a benefit to the indigent. There is no good argument for government to be paying benefits to the middle class with assets and income, in my opinion.

You have to remember that liberals have a completely different mindset. To a liberal, the proper function of government is to protect people from their own irresponsibility, laziness, and ignorance. In fact, these are qualities deserving of reward, according to the liberal mentality, because these people weren't lucky enough to be born responsible, hard working, and thoughtful. The level of their reward is in direct proportion to their irresponsibility, laziness, and ignorance, just as the punishment for those who are responsible, hard working, and thoughtful is in direct proportion to the level of these qualities. In the bizarro world of liberals, vice is virtue, and virtue is vice.

Why strain the government and heavily tax workers to pay benefits to people that don't need them? People like me, for example.

Because liberals are noble, and they know what is best for you.
