    Galing ito sa masyadong biased na media outlet…Ang United States ay nagiging lupa ng mga taong ang gusto ay entitlements…kawawa ang mga trabahador na naghihirap na maghanap-buhay at magbayad ng buwis para itaguyod ang mga nasa welfare at food stamps..kung magaling siya at tinitingnan ang kapakanan ng ikabubuti ng bayan..turuan dapat ang mga taong magsikap para sa ikabubuti nila..ang mga nasa welfare me libreng cell phones saka libre magpa-kumpuni ng kanilang mga sasakyan…ang mga trabahador..you’re on your own which should be the case to begin with..tsk-tsk-tsk..sayang…
