You fiscal conservatives say there is such equal opportunity. Ever seen the world through a lens that isn't rich or middle class? These people don't choose to be poor, they are born into poverty and the deck is forever stacked against them. Kids born into the middle and upper classes have kids that are then born into the middle and upper classes, perpetuating the cycle, keeping the deck stacked against the lower class. You say these people choose not to get jobs, but you need a degree these days to get a job that actually pays something good and that's something the lower class can't get. This is why welfare is a good idea since it levels the playing field and keeps the rich and middle class from fucking up the lower class. And even with welfare all these guys get is shit. And not to mention that welfare isn't THAT much of your taxes.
