Of all the things the Governments spends our cash on. Why is welfare the only thing the republicans want to cut? Cut welfare, cut funding to education, cut social security. We have enough weapons to destroy the world 5x, but heaven forbid we can't cut defense spending. We can't cut corporate welfare. We can't cut aid to other countries.
You right wing nutjobs have been hood winked. Welfare spending is one of the smallest expenditures the government makes. It's definitely not why your taxes are so high.
