Who's talking eliminating anything? Reduction of waste doesn't equal elimination.

Setting this aside, I simply do not believe the government is efficient in any manner at solving problems. If you do, then we will never agree. I believe our society needs to encourage people to get off their butts and solve their own problems, and to do the right thing. This isn't being cruel. As a parent, this is called raising a responsible child.

This does not mean I believe all assistance should be shut off. Of course not. We just need to reward right behavior more than we do slacking behavior.
