    Americans overwhelmingly believe that the bigger problem with the welfare system in the United States is that there are too many overqualified recipients rather than not enough. Most also think legal immigrants should have to wait at least three years before being eligible for welfare benefits

    I wonder what's wrong with the other 29 percent?

    KS needs to be subjected to a few years in Venezuela, Cuba or some other Marxist hellhole so that he can gain a better appreciation for America. In fact, most leftists would benefit from a protrated stay in the countries that they profess to admire, but would never actually live in.

    This really isn't all that meaningful. IN reading the article, the term "welfare" is being applied to a broad range of benefits. I would imagine that there are many Americans whose only benefit is a child or children on free or reduced lunch in school who do not consider themselves to be on welfare. By the same token, there are probably a lot of seniors who are getting some benefit that some would consider welfare.

    One specious jump is that a benefit utilized by a child equates to his parent being on welfare. If this is the case, then there are a number of senior citizens and others who have gotten custody of related or unrelated children who would themselves be considered to be on welfare, even though they live in a paid for $300,000 house and drive a new car.

    Surveys like this measure many things, truth and accuracy aren't at the top.
