wrong, back then people wanted to get off of the aid now its like they think they are Owe it. Look at the last 10 years on how many people went on food stamps. They did not need it but took it.
Honestly, your so full of it, I am surprised you literally havent exploded yet. If your going to look at the last 10 years, then you also have to look at the housing and financial crash of 2008. There is a legitmate reason why the number of people looking to get assistance has risen dramatically over the last 10 years. Clearly your just not smart enough to connect the dots. To just write that increase off as just more people looking for free rides has to be one of the single most ignorant statments I have heard yet on the internet and that is saying something as you hear a lot of ignorant crap on the internet.
To say that the middle class in the US has absolutely been decimated over the last 10 years is a MASSIVE understatement. Go and learn about why that is and you might actually start to understand why there has been such a large increase in government assistance in recent years. Get proactive and actually try learning something.
Here, I will even help you out and get you started.

And this is just a tiny tiny fraction of the articles out there explaining whats happening with the middle class. While your at it, do a search on the current state of the economy and the current state of forclosures. And here is a little graphic that helps explain why there was such a large increase in government assistance since 2007-2008.
Of course, if we go by your brilliant deductions, one would have to surmise that somewhere around the time of January 2008 and January 2009, unemployment rates increased by 6-7% (in almost all 50 states) simply from people deciding they didn't want to work anymore and instead wanted to get government assisstance, simply becasue they thought they were owed as much. And in Jan 2009 unemployment actually increased by as much as 11% in roughly 11 states. Whats shocking is that such a massive number of people across almost all 50 states decided to do this at roughly the same time. Let me guess, it was a huge coordinated social media movement to stop working and get on government assisstance, simply becasue people thought thats what they were owed.
