I think something needs to be do about the welfare system. I see fat people in Walmart with shopping carts full of frozen pizzas, pop, chips, pudding, and anything else you could think of that are using food stamps to pay. These are the same people that have cellphones, cable, internet, designer cloths, expensive acrylic nails, expensive jewelry, gold teeth and are collecting disability. I say we bring back the government food lines where you get the necessities. Also ( I haven't looked much into this but as far as I know they don't do this) why aren't insurance companies reimbursing for people who use vitamins? They pay for prescriptions that can cost over $1000 a month and once you go on one prescription yo usually have to go on 4 more to counteract the side side effects of the first, second, and third ones. I know my vitamins cost $100 a month, that is a 10th of the cost that they are paying in prescriptions. I know that some people don't use the system like that but a lot of people do and It's a vicious cycle. We should be doing more to get these people off welfare. Like offer bonuses for communities that fewer people on welfare, give that money to homeless shelters in the area, reserve a certain amount of city jobs for people that are on welfare so they can come off it. We also need to do something about immigration and high lawsuits. Sorry this is long I am just mad and ranting. Anyone else feel the same way?
