Part of the problem is the demonization of the poor. People spout off about welfare queens living off the government teat but have little to say when you ask them what to do with people who can't afford homes or food. Do we let them starve in the street? Don't say they need to get a job. 8% of our country are actively looking for work and can't find it. There aren't enough jobs for everyone.
Also, people seem to think welfare fraud is rampant. It's not. It's actually exceedingly rare. It's also not mostly minorities and immigrants on food stamps, so please stop with that nonsense.
