    Do you?

    That is what I did before. I do not know if I applied for money or aid or if they chose to give it to me. There is Social Security and DSHS.
    Sounds like something a phone call to a government department might clear up.

    Eventually.

    Are any rich people being taxed to feed the poor?

    I was working for the government at the time so I don't know if everyone does this.

    Thanks. I am not sure if I will do this. If it can be answered here that would be good.
    Serious question. I don't know anyone eating with taxpayers money.

    How would a chief form of income be welfare? Welfare is not income.

    No. Does welfare give you money?

    I do not believe myself to be on welfare. Money, benefit, benefits, income.

    Moot question.

    The only form of taxation that should be implemented by the government should be a personal increase tax, and only 5% at that.

    Then businesses wouldn't have to try to go around the law to make a profit.
