In America, those who work get punished. Those who don’t, get a free ride, courtesy of a nationwide policy of spreading the wealth around through confiscation and redistribution.
Case in point: A welfare recipient in Austin recently contacted a morning radio show and explained that she gets a lot of money from the program. What she does with it may (or may not) surprise you.
Here’s how your hard earned money is being used to help the less fortunate:
“While workers out there are preaching morality at people like me living on welfare, can you really blame us?”
“I get to sit home… I get to go visit my friends all day… I even get to smoke weed…”
“Me and people that I know that are illegal immigrants that don’t contribute to society, we still gonna get paid.”
“Our check’s gonna come in the mail every month… and it’s gonna be on time… and we get subsidized housing… we even get presents delivered for our kids on Christmas… Why should I work?”
“Ya’ll get the benefit of saying “oh, look at me, I’m a better person,” but when ya’ll sit at home behind ya’lls I’m a better person… we the ones gettin’ paid!”
“So can you really blame us?”
