When the subject of taxes and federal money comes up, people on these programs are made to feel like a burden because some folks think they don't pay into the federal coffers. Everytime they buy gas, or food, or cigarettes, or soda, or use a toll road or just breath, they pay a tax. We all do. The federal government has a tax in everything. Why are there so many that forget this and forget that these are people too?
I understand what you mean completely. I myself had to be on welfare after I had my first son. When I used to card people always looked at me like I wasn't trying to take care of my family..but that was just it. I had to have the assistance to provide for my child. Luckily we don't use it anymore but people shouldn't judge someone because of it we all pay in one way or another.. Some people just don't get it.

That's just how people are. No matter what you say or how you feel it's not going to change sadly. I just think it ticks off a lot of people because some take advantage of welfare, SSI and disability. What ticks me off is my mother who worked hard since she was 16 and is now on SSI only gets 1100.00 a month. She is holding on to her house by a thread that she worked so hard to get. She may have 20 bucks left over after paying her mortgage, bills and meds. She has even told me she cuts her meds in half to make them last longer or doesn't even get them.People who do take advantage get much more in benefits. And then we wonder WTH is wrong with our system?

The amount of SSI someone gets is based on how much money they make through out their working career and the age of retirement. The more money someone makes, the more SSI they recieve. My 48 year old dh will get more than that, but not much. Thats if its still there when he retires.
