Could you imagine the abuse of that system???? -- people having mysterious deficiencies that don't allow them to work? It's already a well documented abuse in our safety net programs. Anyone who has ever worked in a manufacturing environments knows the institutional knowledge about doctors who are plug and play for disability and workman's comp.


Then of course, exceptions would have to be made for people who have kids...who are taking care of parents...etc etc.

I take that back...I'm sure free daycare isn't far off next for the progressives so maybe that job obstacle will be eliminated.

And free transportation to and from work.

And free beer.

1. Let them starve and die.
2. They end up in jail/prison.
3. Give them government assistance.
4. They get a job.
I don't think it's a terrible idea for the government to give them a job and make them work for it instead of the government just paying for them to live in jail/prison or give them welfare. I could see it argued that paying them $15 an hour is too much, but if you don't pay them a living wage, they're back on government assistance.

So, mandatory work, right? In other words, if you're unemployed, instead of welfare, you either take this job (if you're physically able of course), or you can starve and die.

I'm not sure where you got that from my post.
Hint: Look at option #3.
