Professional welfare moms are a small percentage of total unemployed/underemployed americans. Yes they are an increasing problem. Obviously they are increasing due to their own reproduction.
That is a fixable problem also and it has nothing to do with illegals. It just takes someone with big enough cajones to cut the sows off from the government teat. A simple law that states any woman on assistance that gets pregnant again after X number of kids(I like the number “one”) can either take a cut in benefits per child or give up the child...would fix the problem real fast.
I agree with that completely. My only comment to start all of this remains, why is one problem discussed incessantly, and the other one silent? And it is not just illegal immigration. Part of the way we "ended welfare" in 1996 was by hiding billions of dollars in welfare payments in Social Security and Medicare (since when did refusing to work become a "disability"?). Yet in all the discussions about social security going broke, not a mention is ever made about getting the welfare parasites out of it. It's almost like welfare has become the third rail, and no one will touch it. And if you'll check out the Heritage Foundation website, you will find that welfare is a MUCH bigger part of the financial problem than most realize.
