Why would someone choose to have children if they knew the only way they could afford to feed their child is with Food Stamps?
As a tax paying American, who funds foodstamps, I would like to know-Where is the personal responsibility?
Is foodstamps an incentive to have children? Do some people feel that they do not need to worry about food on the table, becuase the government has taken the burden of responsibility off of them, the individual?

I'm not sure the OP means all the people who have fallen on hard times and have had to turn to assistance in their time of need. No one can fault or be angry at someone for something that was beyond their control.
What makes me angry, and I think the point that the OP was making, is people like my friend. She & her DH can barely afford to feed themselves. She is working seasonal jobs if she is employed. However, she talks about wanting a baby and feels that is will be okay for her to go on Public assistance so she can have a baby and be a SAHM. This isn't a case of failed BC like Friday mentioned but preplanning. This is what and who make me angry.
