Featuring the Urban Institute's Olivia Golden (who I've had the privilege to work with on several occasions) at about 2:45.

If you think the answer to these problems is to take away benefits, I disagree with you.

If you don't take "it felt like I was standing at the edge of a cliff and I was going to get pushed off" (2:23) kind of reactions to personal situations into account when thinking about what to do about these problems, I don't consider you to be taking a very serious position.
