Welfare benefits should come with strings attached - participation in some version of the Americorps.  If you're going to live off the public fisc then you should be paying back by working for the public in some fashion.  Even the most ignorant and unskilled can contribute by, e.g., cleaning highway medians and shoulders, or keeping parks clean, or washing grafitti off.
