The good old days of welfare

Remember how nice it was when we were upset about welfare going to the poor little black girl in the ghetto? Don’t you wish it was still like that? Now there is so much welfare dolled out to so many people that the tiny portion that goes to the truly poor people hardly matters. Isn’t it welfare any time the government gives money to any person or business? What does it matter if we call it medicare, social security, or anything else?  A rose by any other name… I find it disturbing that any welfare is dolled out without consideration to where it came from and the person who originally earned the money. Why is no thought given and no mention made of the damage that is always done to the people who are forced to “give”. But IF we are going to have welfare it should at least go to poor people.
