THE ,( Sunchmce, Wyo. By Lering Cannon Northern Wyomi,ng Mental Health Center WELFARE CADILLAC There is a popular song ,going around called Welfare Cadillac. The lyrics depict the father of a large family who lives off fche taxpayers at every lurn and somehow is able to buy a new Cadillac every year. The tune is caCehy and t~e words are in, gen- iousl~ written. It's a fun song to listen to. R's a trottbslesome song though, because it is huredul ,to some ,people who do nat deserve to be hurt; those persons ~vho .have to depend on Welfare not ,by choice. And it hurts those people who qualify for welfare but refuse it because of the stigma that songs such as lhis create. I heard a man say recently that ~the song "really tells it like it is" and he s~u~gested that th~se avho don't like the song have somethin,g to ~ide. I can cite numer~>us exam~>les showing that this is not always true. I recall a young ,mother with ihree ,boys, a disability of ~her own, and abandoned by her hus- band. She felt ,grea inferiority over havLng to ,accept wetfare help and unconsciously ta,ught her boys tha~t they were in~ferior people because ,of their welfare status. I think of a ~id,ow with several children &vying to ,live on a meager private pension and re- fusir~g to apply even ~or the food stamp program ,because she wan,t- ed to avoid the stigma that wel- fare recipients bear. i think we need to rout chislers wherever they exist whether they be income ,tax evaders,, def- ense contract mani'pulators, or il- legal welfare recipients. Bu if we are goin,g to set ap a program ~hat is supposed to hel~ a cer- tain group of people, who in Tnany eases ,have nowhere else to turn, ,then let's net insult them for asir~g that ~program.
