Sorry to say this, but I'm pretty sure that being on welfare is actually a punishment. I'm on welfare and it just barely covers rent, medicinal items, standard bills (phone, power, heating, so on). There is actually no money for insurance really, I have one to cover my home, but don't have for myself. It's not like we are swooning with money and throwing it everywhere. Sadly some have a wrong priority yes, that is what should be investigated by the state instead of stamping all.
