Write short essays in answer to the following three questions. Each answer will be no more than
one single-spaced page in length (with normal font and margins); this will, I imagine, in the
range of 500-700 words. In answering these questions, remember that in each case you will
present Kant’s position by making an argument rather than just reporting on a fact.

Welfare Case Analysis Overview and Instructions If you have not done so, be sure

Welfare Case Analysis
Overview and Instructions
If you have not done so, be sure to read the Case Analysis Structure Overview.
In this case analysis you have five tasks:
Give a clear and concise explanation of the case at hand.
Give a thorough, philosophical exegesis of the relevant aspects of Walzer’s and Murray’s arguments. (Click here for some tips on how to do a successful exegesis.)
Present an argument applying the relevant philosophers to the case at hand. This should include an argument justifying who each philosopher would give the welfare to and why.
Present an argument explaining why one of the philosophers can be viewed as offering a more successful solution to the case at hand.
In no more than one paragraph, explain what solution you would propose for Rebecca and Jimmy.
Case
Consider Rebecca, a single mother of 4 who has been a long-term welfare recipient. Rebecca is a weekend meth user who often spends her money on meth. However, without her welfare money, her children would not have any food or medical treatment and would most likely be placed in foster homes where their lives could go worse than they currently are. Rebecca’s yearly welfare application is due.
Now consider Jimmy, a veteran of both Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom. During the battle, Jimmy was wounded and now suffers from some moderate physical disability and post-traumatic stress. Sadly, although Jimmy tried to find a job, there weren’t many systems in place to help him re-integrate or work through his issues. Each day Jimmy begs for money at his local off-ramp. Through no fault of his own, Jimmy has fallen through the proverbial cracks. Jimmy applies for welfare.
Options
You are the welfare overseer. At most one person can get welfare. You can make ONE of the following three decisions:
Give welfare only to Rebecca
Give the welfare only to Jimmy
Don’t give any welfare

Is Welfare Beneficial?
Overview
What, if anything, do we owe to each other? Do systems of redistribution help those who receive them or enslave those who pay into them? Do we have a right to assistance?

Write your Welfare Case Analysis
Here is a former student’s Welfare Forum post. It’s a good sample. The student found an interesting Op-Ed piece, gave a brief analysis of the piece, and applied the same concepts from Murray and Walzer.
Here Links to an external site.is the original article associated with this sample
“The End of Welfare as we know it”
In the article, it gives the consequences of ending welfare to families and individuals in need of welfare. As of 2016, the motion to get rid of welfare is looking to be successful as many people are already losing their welfare. I agree that there should be a time limit to how long a person can use welfare when they are out of work and not volunteering because in my opinion, as an individual, you need to be actively working to better yourself. However, for state-by-state governments, there needs to be a more directed way to spend money on their welfare. By that, I mean that the government should analyze what the people in the state need most and act accordingly.
The numbers of those who have to drop welfare in the articles are astonishing. For example, the article states that in Arkansas, the number of welfare recipients went from 63,000 in 1995 to 9,901 in 2015. The article delves into different states and the status of welfare recipients in their respective states. Many of the government believe that those who can’t find a job; can always volunteer to receive welfare. But for some states, the volunteer places may require travel fees, work equipment, etc, all of which would require money. The states need to analyze what the people need most and act accordingly by distributing the money for welfare or increasing the time limit.
Murray would agree with the decisions of the state to start to create a stronger limit on welfare; however, he would advocate for the removal of welfare for the same reason. Though, the states seem to be unable to completely remove welfare; the states want to head in that direction as the amount of those receiving less welfare looks appealing. Murray observes the time limit would help lessen the net harm that he writes about in Law 3. However, Walzer would argue that there needs to be a membership made by the exchange of welfare for those in need. If Walzer were to look at the piece he would argue with the state that they have a moral right to help those who are starving and stop creating a time limit that may leave many starving people.
