No, we need to encourage and enforce more people to work for their money instead of getting hard earned tax payer money handouts from the government when a lot of the time, the people who do get handouts waste it on gambling, drugs and alcohol. Emphasis needs to be on improving infrastructure and facilities and services, reduce or slow down the cost of living to earnings so people can actually afford to pay for basic necessities themselves. And make healthcare and dental services free (included in the taxes) and reduce prices on environmentally friendly products and services to reduce carbon footprint and entice people to make more environmentally conscious decisions with their purchases.
