I would expect that in cases like that, you could have what I would consider a true social safety net - something that an individual could only access if they passed the means test for it. I would expect it would be enough to live on, but maybe not so comfortably. Something like that would be a lot cheaper and probably much more effective than the system we have now.
Ehyeh asher ehyeh.
"You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream – the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order – or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism." -Ronald Reagan
