Questions - Welfare - October 21-22, 2014
National Survey of
1,000 Likely Voters
Conducted October 21-22, 2014
By Rasmussen Reports
1* Does the United States spend too much, too little, or about the right amount on welfare and other programs to help those in financial need?
2* Beginning next year, Indiana will limit access to food stamps to three months for adults without children who do not find work or do not participate in a 20-hour-a-week job training program. Do you favor or oppose a program limiting food stamp benefits like this in your state?
3* Should the federal government put time limits on all public assistance programs?
4* Suppose someone lost his or her job and has been looking for work for a full year without success. Should state governments offer such workers a minimum wage government job instead of welfare payments?
5* How would you rate the job government public assistance programs have done in reducing poverty and getting Americans back to work – excellent, good, fair or poor?
