The government should freely hand out welfare.

I don't really agree with any of the options.

I don't know how it is in the US but in the UK people who are looking for work get £50 a week. These same people are caused scroungers and are accused of living a life of luxury on the state's money. Well I ca't be the only one who finds the thought of somebody living a life of luxury on £50 a week ridiculous.

Welfare is not the government's job and should be left to churches and private organizations.

I'd like to see a complete reform of welfare laws that includes education and job placement. The bureaucrats and politicians have turned welfare and its recipients into a cash cow industry for themselves

It still is too generous, but many problems of the old welfare system were eliminated with the Clinton administration. Of course, welfare should always be about rising people out of poverty, not handing out free money.
