while i know some abuse the system there are people out there who need the assistance. like for instance a person who loses a job or someone who was making good money then got injured and can no longer work like they used to. families are living is subsidized housing to be able to take care of their kids without fear of living on the the street. i know i been there. Hubby was almost killed and went from a 900-1000 a week job to making barely minimum wage because of it. i already had health issues that kept me from working. I did not know when we had our kids that all this was going to happen. before hubby had to give up his good paying job when the company found out they started giving him bad runs leaving us owing the company money how do you pay rent or utilities or buy groceries when you owe the company money ( he was a owner operator leased on to a company truck driving). so we lost everything our home, the kids had to leave their friends so we could stay with relatives. the economy is so bad. hubby works temp jobs while looking for full time work. he does not have the state insurance but i and the kids do. it helps with my medicine which i do pay a co pay for, the baby i had which was not expected gets Wic because i cannot breast feed. i thank God for it if not my baby would be hungry. Yes , i am getting sterilized. my husband does pay taxes to since he is working. he is not like his ex who he has a child with and pays child support to. she has 4 kids and does not work and refuses to and even lied to court to move out of state saying she had a job just to pull the kids from all their fathers. luckily her state kind of forced issue for her to get fixed. please think before you accuse everyone of abusing or wanting to abuse the system, not everyone does. in fact i heard in Indiana the government decided to pull funding for planned parenthood which gives birth control to low income families. do you know what that would mean? more kids being born because they could not get birth control. because they are using the abortions that the clinics do. no i do not believe in abortion but taking funding away hurts not only the poor but puts more people on assistance because of pregnancies even hospitals are starting to refuse to do abortions afraid their funding will be taken away. Believe me i hope one day we do not need the assistance. but I thank god for it. my kids meds would be hubby check for two weeks to. I am not saying that people do not abuse the system but i am saying not all do.
