    1. Douglas Howard, Burn says:

      I believe that entitlements reduce the drive of an individual to succeed in any aspect of life. I believe the welfare system should be abolished along with the minimun wage system. Individuals on welfare should be offered a job that is within their capability. If they need assistance to after accepting the job they would get it for a given period of time at whcih point the assistance would slowly cut back to zero.

      Those working within the welfare system should not be given fully paid benefits, they must help pay for their medical and their pensions. Pensions and medical are based on straight time wages or salary, not padded like many social jobs are now. The size of the sytem must be reduced to reduce the burden off the tax payer.

      Pension funds for public jobs once funded by the contributions of the workers are no longer subject to refunding when effected by economic fluctuations, the public should not be considered an endless source of funds.

      Remeber, public service jobs are working for the people not the other way around.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
