Don't think it's reasonable to shut off all social support systems

To The Daily Sun,

In Wednesday's paper, Toni Piper responded to a recent letter of mine where I suggested Republicans need to have a plan to transition people off welfare and dependency. Toni said it isn't government's job to get people out of poverty. Right, absolutely right. But then there is the reality we smash our heads up against if we don't consider finding some realistic transition vehicle.

I don't think it is reasonable to shut off all support systems, like turning off the lights. Such would result in starvation, homelessness, riots, crime rates soaring. Heck, it would cost more then it would save.

Okay, so I at least put out an idea. What ideas on the subject do others have? Toni, what is your thinking for some realistic plan?
