If you get actual Cash assistance from Welfare, how much do you get?

Not Foodstamps or Vouchers or Section 8 but actual CASH a month?
How many are in your family?
I'm just wondering because so many people make it out like people on Welfare have it made in the shade.
Tell us, how "rich" (saying this sarcastically has being on welfare made YOU?

  • when i went and applied, they told me that i would be getting 200 a month... AND that they would take a percentage out of child support that i DON'T get... yeh, not worth it. 200 doesn't even pay for gas for my vehicle.
