Let the welfares go. Here in Sweden they were like "We gotta save some money here" and then wasted billions to build up an useless arena.
Its always like that, no gov. can save money without wasting 200% on useless stuffs. If they could make rich people pay alot more taxes and actually SAVE the money, and force people who take welfare to work a bit, well, then it would go up, but no, you cant, its the human nature.
It doesnt mather if its the gov. or someone winning 30 millions, it will end up in a loss.
