Ha. It amazes me that people complain about being poor and not getting enough help from the government.
Hell- I work for my money and to provide for myself now and for the future. If they want to have medical treatment, send their kids to college and have some sort of pension then they should get off their butts and work and save their money like the rest of us instead of wasting their $300 a week minimum wage paycheck on silly things like rent, utilities bills, transport to and from work, food and clothing.
It's ridiclous that I should be expected to contribute any of my $60k/pa salary to investing in the nations greatest resource - its people.
