    I’ve heard this quote in the past few years, and it illustrates your points well: Social programs (especially welfare) are supposed to be a safety net, not a hammock.

    Our country forgot the lessons of The Marshall Plan when Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society” introduced new social programs in the 1960’s. Without a plan to get people off these programs, we’ve created an environment where the recipients expect something for nothing. It will be difficult to break this cycle, but we must, if we want to break the cycle of poverty and get our citizens to become more self sufficient.
