Should moms be allowed to collect PA just to be able to stay at home with their children? Would your opinion be different if they could provide for their family just fine if they worked? Where should the line be drawn? Meaning if you could change PA, how would you change it and how would you decide which sahms should get PA and which shouldn't?

"BUT when I was in a hardship and needed assistance, the government would have spent more in helping me afford daycare to go to work than the food stamps, WIC, and medicaid we received. So in my case, the government saved money by me being a SAHM while on the assistance at the time."
Not judging you but how can you say the government saved money? I would think it would be cheaper to provide daycare assistance for you to work to be able to provide food (less foodstamps), health insurance for your family (less funding for medicaid). The government didn't save money, they actually spent more money.

I would make many changes to welfare. Starting with, if you already get PA, you shouldn't be able to TTC. If have another child while you are already collecting PA, you should be dropped from PA. Women that get PA should only be able to stay at home for 1year with children under a year unless they are enrolled in school. I would make more funding available to moms that are in school and or working. Moms that get PA should be required to give birth father's information and required to go after them for child support. They need to change the system from "hand out" to " a hand up". The system we have now makes it impossible for people to get a hand up. It needs to change.
