I do in fact work. Therefore my "tax dollars" do go into the system
I do receive food stamps simply because I qualify for them
I do not spend what I get ($433 a month for my SO, 3 children, and myself) on solely junk and crap food
If some of you read the programs guidelines and such you will see that it states that "the total amount is not set to live ONLY on assistance, but to help families get by. Those families are going to have to spend some cash during that month"
Yes, I receive free medical care. I have children who need a healthy mother to care for them
Not every single person on public assistance is a lazy, no good system abuser
With that being said, I hope some of you ladies with all that pride fall off of your high horses and need help with the system. Lets see what happens when both you AND your husband get laid off around the same time and live in a place where the "good" jobs are scarce so then you're forced to work a part time/minimum wage job just to pay your bills.
It happend to me. The shitty jobs we have are not enough to pay the rent, utilities, phone bills, child care, car insurance, and an ample supply of food. I swallowed my pride and applied for assistance. When it comes to your family, you'd do the same and if not then IN MY OPINION you're a horrible person.
Ok! Rant over!
