I have foodstamps and wouldn't need them if...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

They didn't take so much out of DH's check each week....We are a family of 5 and get 250 a month in food stamps, however I figured out last night if the IRS did not take out roughly 462.00 a month from DH's paycheck we would do just find and not need any help!!!

 Doesn't matter how many taxes they take out of your husband's pay check, FS and the like is based off you gross income, before taxes are even taken out.

That would require her to get a job and support herself instead of complaining about taxes.

Quoting macbudsmom:

I did the math and you could work 10 hours/week at minimum wage to earn that $250 yourself.

Why not do that?

Is it taxes or taxes, health insurance and retirement?

IDK- I'm begining to be bored by some of this stuff already! lol

You do know that taxes taken out of earnings are for lots of things-right? Schhols, fire, police and ambulance protection. Roads, bridges, prisons, legal system etc..etc...

If you stopped the withholdings from all of us, how would any of us have any other services???

I know right!

The past few I was looking for a job since my Dh was injured at work and couldn't work. Not a damn soul would hire me because I have been a SAHM for over 4 years, everyone said it was because I had no work history for the past years.


It's not as easy as some people think it is.
