The goal should be the ability to earn and give freely. No ridiculous limits on small businesses put in place by larger corporations to reduce competition. No free cell phones for people that just plain don't want to work (no, that's not a myth - I know people that have them). Let people keep more of their pay and I guarantee, they'll spend it. And that puts more people in jobs, which allows them to earn money which they also will spend. That's where you get "a prosperous economy".
On the other hand, I know others who have disabilities who would dearly love to work, but due to pain issues, medications and insurability, they just can't. I don't mind helping them out at all. But to think there aren't people seriously abusing the system for decades is sticking your head in the sand.
Yes, there is corporate welfare, and it's generally very wrong in my eyes. I would love to have that taken away as well. I don't have a problem fighting against both types of system abuse.
