Judge Judy: 'Government is there to serve us, not the other way around'

Popular television judge Judy Sheindlin – better known as “Judge Judy” – told Megyn Kelly Friday on "The Kelly File" that “government is there to serve us. Not the other way around."

Judge Judy didn’t stop there, also questioning whether the welfare state has allowed people to become too dependent on government.

“What we’ve done to a whole group of people is say, ‘not to worry, if you can’t take care of yourself, we’ll take care of you,’” she said.

At the end of her chat with Kelly, her self-proclaimed "number one fan," Judge Judy wondered if today’s children are too often told that they’re special.

“It gives young people a false sense of reality,” she said. “It creates mediocrity. It stops people from wanting to be better.”

Fantastic interview!!!!  I was impressed beyond words.  Her words were honest and true.  How do you let generation after generation live on welfare.  These babies are born and before they can speak their parents steal their dreams and ambition because they do not teach them to reach to achieve anything.  I believe that if the government pays for your child that you should have to prove you are feeding, cleaning, clothing and teaching your children.  Parents should have to go to counseling and therapy to help them want more out of life by giving them confidence and strength.  Children should have counseling too so that they realize they can do more than get in a welfare line.  Parents should have to take education classes and each should have a time limit of when welfare will end, that way they are working toward a goal.  We have to make people want to work not sit home.  There is no reason a woman sitting home all day being paid by the government to care for her children sends her kids to school hungry and dirty.   I believe if we make those on welfare have to meet goals they will or they are off.
