Something to ‘live’ on

Email

What’s in a name? A lot. 

Politicians are currently proposing a raise in welfare benefits. Some politicians took a challenge to “live” on the current amount. They said: “No one could possibly live on that.” 

I’m not debating whether or not it should or shouldn’t be raised or how much; I want to know how and when welfare became something to “live” on.
