Wow! Another person who doesn't like welfare. Yes I agree that today people use and abuse welfare and that millions of tax payers dollars go to waste on this social system and if it doesn't go here that it might go to some other bail out that we do not need because if they failed at business then to damn bad they should just fall. But to blame FDR is just stupid. Before you blame a great president look at what the "SS" act was for. It was a temporary solution that never went away. Yes it does seem like a socialist thing to have but it was used during the hardest time this country has ever seen and truly helped thousands of destitute Americans. But it was supposed to end after WWII when prosperity returned to the US but low and behold FDR died before he could end it. The incoming presidents did not want to end such programs instituted during the FDR presidency because people are stupid and lazy and they wanted their votes. Blame the poor and ignorant not the men who created a great nation.
