Hey +George Cook AAreports , I think this is a dead link....I clicked it, and it says the posting is gone.

Anyway, I looked up what the buzz was regarding Romney's stance on welfare, and I would like to mention a couple things:

It's very easy for some people to say everyone who is on welfare is a bum or lazy, but there are several things to consider. If there is a mandatory work component incorporated into welfare reform, what do you do with people who are poor and have no transportation to get to a job, or live in a rural area where there is no public transportation? What if these people who are in need of assistance have physical or mental disabilities? What if you are talking about the elderly? The list goes on and on, but once again it really makes me shake my head when you get angry rich guys like Romney that seem to think poor people have caused all these problems in the world, and are just a bunch of lazy bums who refuse to work.

I would much rather see my tax dollars going to help people with basic food assistance, medical care, job training and education, or housing than see bridges to nowhere, Cadillac health plans and absurd pensions for politicians, a larger military, sports arenas, huge government grants for schools that deny access to people who don't fit a particular profile or can afford the high tuition fees, and the list goes on.
