I'm all for disabled poor people to be able to pick themselves up by their own bootstraps, but having the state help at my expense really works at crosspurposes. How are these people going to learn how to help themselves?

@tea is best.

Did you read your comment? If i am disabled and poor i dont posses the resources to do this on my own. By getting help through programs like this, i can work so to help me become self sufficent.

BTW, tea is the worst.

You see, I try to help a 'poor' and disabled person and all I get is a whiny rant on victimization. I wake up with headaches some days, but I don't ask my govt and my fellow taxpayers to pay for aspirin to get me going. That's MY job. If you're not self-sufficient who's fault is that anyway? I suppose you want poverty and disability included in the Bill of Rights. But guess what, I've got news for you, there's no mention of self sufficiant individuals like myself having to fork over good money to help other people just because they've got there own problems. Get a life! Or move to a communist country!
