  • Judging from what I've seen at the grocery store the answer would be yes. Just the other day I see what I see every time I go shopping. Some lady buying candy, soda and assorted other junk food on food stamps. It's interesting how the vast majority of those I see using PA is wearing expensive clothes and accessories. Must be nice. And all it takes in crappy health to get welfare and medicaid? Great! I'll tell everyone I know who works for their money and insurance to quit their jobs and go get free healthcare.

  • public assistance=PA

    my thoughts would be no, people have worries no matter what
    you could ask if rich people have less worries
    my thought would be no
    less issues concerning money and how to pay the bills, but kids are kids and parents of all kinds have the same worries

  • No, I think they just have a different set of worries. I'm worried about how the new health care reform will affect people on medicaid that actually DO need it.

  • PA = Public Assistance

    I would think. They don't have to worry if the store is going to have good sales or not. Right know with the crisis we are selling less and it's affecting our budget.

  • No I think everybody has worries they are just a different type of worry.

  • if a person is getting PA, would you not assume that they have a lack of money
    and therefore they have money worries
    not that people without PA do not have money worries
    I do not get PA, so maybe i do not know, but PA only goes so far, people on PA are NOT living the high life, they are getting by like most everyone else

  • No we used food stamps but we still had a house to pay for, electric, water, etc. My son receives MA but we still have our doctor bills so he can go but there are times that we put it off ourselves because we don't have the money.
