The first thing to do is eliminate the federal departments that belong to the sates and local entities. That reduces waste and double costs. Then slash rules and regulations that are not necessary and burdensome. Then reduce or cut foreign aid and UN payments and if the UN doesn't like, invite them help in moving.

It's a pure guess but have to believe the savings would be enormous.

You are correct that it's just a poll...but, there's some things to think about. Maybe, just maybe, people do much better and feel better about themselves and the country if they get fewer freebees and work more. There is also much to say about having less Washington!

The overwhelming majority of Americans agree that poor people are too dependent on government assistance, a poll reveals — and poll results differ very little according to income.

Overall, 71 percent of respondents in a Pew Research Center survey agree with the statement: "Poor people have become too dependent on government assistance programs."

Somewhat surprisingly, 68 percent of respondents earning less than $30,000 a year agree — more than the 65 percent of those earning at least $100,000 a year. Among respondents earning between $30,000 and $100,000, 77 percent agree.

One in five Americans — more than 67 million — depend on Washington for assistance, according to the Heritage Foundation's 2012 Index of Dependence on Government.

Pew also asked respondents about this statement: "Many people today think they can get ahead without working hard and making sacrifices."

Maybe bug and the union need a reminder of how serious the funding cuts are at CAA. At one time CAA was the sponsor agency for Senior Aids, Food Pantry and Meals on Wheels. Due to funding cuts, these program were absorbed by other agencies thus staff was laid-off or reassigned. With so many people in need of affordable public transportation, I'd hate to see the CARTS program go by the way of the other three mentioned programs. Now I ask...is it more beneficial to the union workers to take the 3% raise, or go collect unemployment?

"CARTS and the CAA are both funded with federal and state dollars."

The CARTS program has been hanging on by a thread as it is and these drivers pushed by the union is only going to sink this ship. Only thing a Union pushes is the money demand, they NEVER take into consideration the big picture and the overall long term effect it will have on them. Programs are going to start taking hits and serious big ones.

viper1 says: "And for heaven sakes get rid of the union.They were good at one time. But out of date today and do nothing but harm."

Sooooo true, in fact, this union is hurting these drivers. There is a bigger picture involved here and it's not being painted.

I think .33 is a great raise per year. Especially for a job which requires no schooling or real education. People all want to make what the high skill jobs get and don't want to work for it. Very seldom in my life did I get a 33 cent raise least wise for three years running. Make your offer if they say no rehire! If they want better let them go find it. Lots of people will take that pay. And for heaven sakes get rid of the union.They were good at one time. But out of date today and do nothing but harm.
