  • Well I can understand food stamps and medicare if she needs it....but the cash... is she in college? Is that why she isn't working?

  • most likely the cash this person is crying about is from TANF (temporary assistances for needy families ) you get it from welfare

  • The programs are set up that it is more difficult to get help if you do work. I have an employee that was told by section 8 that she needed to work less hour in order to get help. She makes minimum wage and works 30 hours a week, so how could she work less hours and have any money left?

  • The system is so messed up. People who really need help are not getting it. There are a lot of people who need the help but they way it is all done is crap. I know someone who has 3 children and is bringing in more money from the state them my husband and I are with both our pay checks. The bad thing is that she admits to smoking pot at least 4 times a week. If the money was going to her children I would understand but when it goes to her pot and to have her hair died that just makes me mad. I work my ass off and I don't even know if I am going to have enough money to buy my son a Birthday present next week.
