    most of the time you have too work in order to get income tax and if someone on welfare is working while they are on welfare that is not legal I know that is the Law In Ky

    I am so damn tired of working with people who live off the system and are proud of scamming the system. Mind you, I am working full time and also have a second job just to pay the bills and these free loading assholes come to work when they feel like it and still get shit load of money back in taxes. Oh and to top it off they get more money for having babies with no Dad to be seen. And then...they expect the people at work to throw in money for a baby shower gift...I refuse and told them they already take money out of my check for you lazy asss people.

    I do agree that some people need help for a while and I will help anyone who is trying to do their best and raise a good family. Those people who are proud to take what is not theirs and what they have not earned should be ashamed of themselves, really really ashamed and what they are doing is stealing. And stealing is a sin.

    But then I'm for getting rid of welfare completely. I would support a system where welfare is temporary (up to six months), paid out only if you can prove that you have applied to at least one job each week, not used to reward people for irresponsible reproduction and/or sloth, and is a LOAN that is paid back over time.

    Which type of welfare? Food stamps, Aid to Dependent children? partial work to welfare like unemployment & food stamps or medical? vouchers? Depends why they are there. There are veterns on welfare, people that work but were laid off. People that have put into the system but are sick and can't get back to work. Or can't work until their medical treatments like chemo, or dialysis are complete. There are many reasons people are on Welfare it's case by case. :)

    We should always take care of those in need. It's simple, as recognizing what kind civilization we want to have. But we both know the system is strained by those using the system to simply not work. It is common practic any more for young women to not marry the babies father so she can get welfare, and I mean all races. They often are living together and acting married.

    Hi Silverback, I agree. In my state (washington) you get welfare for dependent children for 5 years.period. I don't think anyone should be allowed to get 'payment' and not want to do anything. Now, that being said if the mother belongs in the home the aid to dependent children are to support the kids. Regardless of what we think of the parent(s).

    Kids call it gaming the system. If they can marry and that removes their elegiblity for welfare thats the way its supposed to be. Its taking money from those that have a real need.

    Hi Silverback, I agree cheating the system does no one any good. Why aren't there checks in place, surely the Dept. of Social Services has some clue that ploys are used to 'get around' rules. Maybe DSS is who should be held to a higher standard. They are ultimatly in control of the funding.

    I know that in my state an audit of depts is possible. How that starts of happens is beyond me. Maybe a mass outpouring of letters emails to State Representatives is in order on a large scale. Geez, we are only asking them to do there job.

    LOLOLOL right about that. It's like paying an insurance company for years and the first time you ask them to do their job they are pissed and your rates go up. There are also independent auditors we have one for the city I am at.

    I'm a bit confused here. If they are on Welfare, then they have no income to tax, so where would this refund be coming from? A tax refund is only the government giving you back your own money when the deduction from you pay is greater than what you really owe.

    dosent matter if its welfare, or disability,or whatever, if you dont work and pay in taxes you get NODDA! you are to much of a drain on the rest of us already. I know alot of single parents who work, anythingelse is just a excuse to get a handout

    If you are referring to tax refunds, no. If you are referring to the "stimulus" package here in the U.S., what disqualifies them from being consumers to stimulate the economy?

    i do think that if a parent who DOES work but also gets welfare should be intitled to the tax refund they have coming though...just NOT the lazy, drug addict, system abusers...

    For what? Income tax is just that. Income that you overpaid your taxes. If you are not working then where is the income? Do they take taxes out of welfare? I have no idea never been on welfare. But If you are a family and did work some and had to go on welfare then I would see why you would get a refund. Because you would get child tax credit and If you own a home that you pay intrest that you get a tax credit.

    If you don't pay taxes you shouldn't get a rebate or a stimulus check. That is wealth re-distribution. To quote the 4th ammendment: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated"
