Having once worked as an AFDC/Food Stamp Eligibility Specialist, I know that the people who have to have government help would love to be able to end that help. Just applying for that help (which must be done periodically) is a humiliating experience. They go through this government-imposed humiliation because they must -- not because they want to.
The real moochers are the corporations and businesses that pay their workers so small a salary they they must ask for government help -- and then avoid paying the taxes on the extra profit they get from abusing their workers. The real "welfare queens" are the Wall Street executives who continue to give themselves six and seven figure bonuses after being bailed out by the middle class taxpayers.
