On this particular topic I am moderate i agree with the liberals but i also agree with the conservatives to a point. The preamble states “we the people of the united states in order to form a more perfect union establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense and welfare..” welfare was meant to be for the people who can not proved for themselves. For example the elderly and the children, but because the way the economy is we have to find a way to help people get back on their feet. I do believe that the government should help the people who really need it not the people who take advantage of the system. I think that the government should have life limit on how much help they can receive other wise people will never get out of their economic situations. At this point and time i do think that it is ok to have a safety net but it shouldn’t last forever.
