I know so MANY people on PA that really don't need it. I know grown men with no kids that get food stamps, um sorry but tell them to get off their asses and get a job! Its people like that that make everyone else on PA look bad. I am a single mom of two, my now ex husband abonded us a year ago. I was only working part time, it was the only way to get food on the table for my kids, so i am not ashamed.
I couldnt work more hours because i could afford the child care. I beleive if the goverment went back to the way it was years ago ( could only be on until your children were 5 and had to be working) and they took the extra money theyd save on just that to help with childcare for single moms, it'd give us a chance to get back on our feet faster and not have to need PA or at least not near as much!
