Should we be spending less on welfare?Watch
The Welfare State should be completely abolished. No benefits, no NHS, no nothing. We need a system decided by the market, not the government. If you can't afford it, you don't deserve it.
The issue is where/what do you cut?
I think the idea to reduce the Welfare state is a good one but not to the point where the lowest earners are left completely without any safety net.
I'd remove child benefits for all kids after the second one (for future families, I wouldn't do it for families already with 3+ children).
I do think Working Tax Credits need to phased out in the long run as they basically allow private companies to underpay workers. However this shouldn't be done in a way that disadvantages the worker.
