  • There are benefits to having a job, including self respect. If you want to collect welfare instead, go ahead. It's your decision.

  • I would say you are delusional if you think welfare recipients live comfortably!

  • That their definition of comfortable is pretty low because people on welfare have a hard time just paying bills.

  • I know that if I only had $80 for diapers, gas and extras I wouldn't use a DIME of it on cigarettes! You put your addiction before your child and that is wrong.
