I'm from the Uk and was just reading about the US welfare system, to be honest it sounds terrible that a person can only claim welfare for 60 months of there life. What if after that 60 months a person cannot find a job, as we know there are not enough jobs to go round? do they go homeless and starve? In America do people get help with there rent, do they get help if they are on minimum wage yet have a family? It just sounds pretty cruel to have people struggle through no fault of there own.
