The overwhelming majority of "takers" are young children, the elderly and disabled. They're already on Medicaid and Medicare.


Yes, every policy is designed to help "children, the eldery, the sick"...nobody is gaining the system. There's no abled bodied people getting those perks.

Children should be taken care of by their parents, it's their parents who are the Takers. The elderly paid into the system when the were earning. The disabled...well, those who can't help themselves should be taken care of by the government.

If we limited Government assistance to those who can't take care of themselves instead of those who don't. We'd have a balanced budget in no time.
