End Welfare Instead of Druge Testing For It

How about we end welfare instead adding further regulations? I think it is a basic responsiblity to be able to feed, clothe, and provide shelter for yourself and your children. I understand that people fall on hard times, but it is not my responsibility to take care of them when they do. This is where charities and churches can volunarily fill that need, instead of forcing taxpayers to do it. The only reason we are forced to pay for others bad luck and mistakes is so that our government can garner votes.

I went to school, studied hard, go to work 5 days a week, and save to make sure I can take care of myself if something bad happens. I pay insurance premiums every month to prepare for the worst of health scenariso. I eat fresh fruits and vegetables so that I am healthy. I avoid drugs and alcohol as to reduce my chances of disease. I work out to increase my logevity and productivity. I use birth control because I am not ready to afford a child. Where is the personal responsiblity these days? Why is it OK for some people to not take care of themselves?
