    Will you try to get on welfare?

    After all it pays better than any job you can land in New York or California.

    the big money used to be in SSI. if you can quality for that, you can hold a job and collect without a reduction in the SSI payments.

    you're insane. The maximum benefit for a single person on SSI is $331 a month, and you can't be employed at all

    no one should starve in the US, even if they refuse to work. we have to have some standards for the way we want our country to be. its the same as with water: nobody should die of thirst here.
