Our social policy must encourage work, not sloth

By Tom Quiner

These words from Dr. Ben Carson are vitally relevant to this country today:

“In 36 states it is actually easier for a person to cultivate all the various entitlement programs than to live on a minimum-wage job, so in a way you can’t blame them,” he said, adding that the government has wasted trillions of dollars on social safety nets. “What do we have for it, more people on food stamps, more people in poverty, more broken families, more incarcerations — everything that was supposed to be better is much worse,” stressing that you need to encourage people to want to work.”
