GC Speaks: Government and State Aid Programs and Social Mobility

There has been a running debate for a while now about social welfare and federal and state aid programs. Some say that the programs are just a way for people to be lazy and reap the benefits of others’ work. Others say that although there are some people who take advantage of the system, there are also those who really need to programs to get back on their feet. I believe that these programs should not be removed completely, but that perhaps there should be more regulations for those who enroll in them.
