I've been reading a lot about welfare lately....just a few facts I would like to point out to those of you who don't have a clue to what you're talking about.
Do you know that if you make a certain amount a month (BEFORE taxes) it doesn't matter what your bills are a month, that you do not qualify, even though you make under the "yearly" amount allowed.
Do you know that welfare laws make it more affordable to be single and a parent than they do for a family?
Do you also realize that many many caseworkers are telling applicants to get a legal separation so that they will qualify for help because their hands are tied...
There are many out there who like to screw the system, but there are more out there who have worked almost everyday of their lives and never asked for a penny until now, there are people who are disabled, abused mothers and fathers, and just "normal" people in general trying to make ends meet....
Before you judge, ask what you would do if you lost your job and couldn't put food in your child's mouth...would you give them up for adoption, give them to a family member or friend while you lived on the street, or would you break down and go ask for help from your state???
As for what they buy with them....I have to chuckle a bit...you give someone 200.00 a month in food stamps and then 200.00 a month in cash and tell them they can only use it on food....see what happens...see who buys healthier vs junk.....
Just sayin.....don't judge until you walk in their shoes.
