A program started by the US government for under income families. however, there has been abuse of the program where people exploit the housing prices to get rich.
Example: a person living in a Welfare housing that owns a 40 grand Cadilac.

85% of the time it can be described as... what the lazy rely on, feeling it's 'owed' to them just for being human. Because they do nothing, but still feel that they are great regardless and that they deserve this simply for being a human being.
"I'm a Liberal, because I don't want my welfare to go away. I deserve it, even though I've never done anything for anyone else, and never will... but gimme, gimme, gimme!"

1. The thing Democrats invented to brainwash lower class people into voting for them so they (Democrats) can stay in office.

2. The excuse a lazy, waste of DNA person gives for not going out and getting a job.

3. The biggest voting block of the Democrat party.

4. The biggest waste of money America has ever seen.
I despise and have no respect for anyone who lives off welfare and refuses to work like the rest of us.

government assistance to the poor which was formerly riddled with problems, that in 1996 America ended as we knew it
It was finally time to make welfare what is should have been: a second chance, not a way of life

That check you get at the first of the month.

A social excuse to allow more government control.
The government buys my vote by offering me and the rest of my crack-adled buddies welfare. I love the democratic party!

A type of program that one would take because of horrid financial problems.

Although Welfare is commonly used by lazy people, Welfare still has a vital purpose in civilization.
"Sadly, everyone takes Welfare due to laziness. To me, the only time Welfare is appropriate is if the person, or his family, is in bad financial shape. Nevertheless, as long as lazy people take Welfare, Welfare is nothing but an excuse."
