What are these government handouts I keep hearing about?

Every time I ask someone about it, they give me a sarcastic answer. If these handouts really exist and are such a bane on American economy, why can't anyone tell me what they are? I already know about welfare and snap (food stamps). But what else is there?
Update: @Taylor - I didn't give you a thumbs down, someone else did. Chill out.
