The Medicaid program has more participants than any other welfare system (Welfare 5). Welfare programs where introduced to assist families in need to live a good quality lifestyle, and also to help support their children.

This is a question…

    Many supporters of welfare point out that the United States is lacking compared to most European nations when it comes to welfare.

    Today in the United States around one hundred and ten million people were on welfare (“The 35.4 percent”). If you keep looking into it, that is almost thirty-five percent of the people in America (“The 35.4 percent”). So, what about the rest of the world? Why are we paying for these people? America needs to stop and stand up for themselves.
