"And right, welfare should be restrictive so that it motivates to look for a job to get a better living. "

That is a fallacy that annoys me a great deal. Poverty is seldom motivational. For those out there who would rather skive than contribute, the amount is not a factor. For those trying to pull themselves up, poverty restricts their options and depletes their spirits.

It is a vicious cycle, and poverty makes it worse, not better.
