Its amazing really the extent some will go. I've been on PA when I was homeless, with a 1yro, pregnant, and did everything I could to get off of it asap. I can't imagine TRYING to purposely stay on it 0.o

It happens a lot here, unfortunately. I can understand going on Medicaid or some kind of financial aid to save money whilst you're working to save up for stuff for baby, kids, etc., but if you're sitting around and having the government pay your bills, that's terrible parenting.

oooo, i met a FAMILY like this, like the whole family sons, daughters and step kids and mom. I was like wtf and the whole family refuses to get a job or anything. The son stayed with us for two weeks because we didnt realize he was a crum bum, his sister and mom didnt understand why we kicked him out of our house. Two weeks and all he did was put in ONE application at a place.
