  • I hate welfare and I also like it. Those who really need it, don't get it, and those who abuse it, or don't need it, get it. This girl needs it, and I hope the state that you are in have that Domestic Violence waiver thing that one of the resonses stated.

    I hope she gets some kind of help.

  • Here in MI they have a domestic violence waiver that makes exceptions for women who are victimsof this crime. Why other states don't adopt this policy is beyond me.

  • See this is exactly why I HATE welfare. I'm completely for it for the reasons OP stated! This lady should be getting help not the women who sits on her ass because their too lazy to get a job. I wish we could pick and choose who are tax money went to!
