They all abuse they system
They all are lazy bums who leech off the government
none of them work
they made bad decisions and choice
they had kids before they were ready
they all drive nice cars, and have iPhone
all they make is excuse after excuse
they all are trash
none of them are educated
they buy things they can't afford
their kids will grow up on pa
they all keep having kids to get more pa

I am sure there are more misconceptions about people on pa but these are the most common used one.
I am sure that some do fall into these categories but not all in fact most don't.

You have a point . Every person I know on PA is lazy and won't work it's to easy for them to just do nothing but game drugs all day .

Not all of them, but most do. all of those things  you've listed are things I have seen people on PA with. Yet I have to bust my a** to get  these luxuries which is ok, because I EARN them ...... and then there are people who REALLY need PA but for whatever reason they can't qualify, that makes it even worse.

Now quit with the PA Posts. You don't like being judged yet you keep bringing it up.

I've seen stereotypical pa users and I've seen people on hard times on them. Funny thing is that the people who've fallen on hard times don't get much. A woman abusing the system told me she gets cash and nearly.six hundred in fs. BUT the family on hard times only get 200.it's sad.

I agree with you OP
I haven't seen anybody abuse the system
Everyone I know are NOT lazy bums, and were all working.
No they didn't make bad decisions or have kids before they were ready.
Most were actually highly educated

I get food stamps and I work. That's not abusing the system. I am currently in school to better myself for my kids. Not everyone is looking for a handout. Even if they are the real crooks are in Washington. All your government offices that tax is, yet we have no money for education, healthcare or other things. No matter how bad we are doing as people they are always living in luxury. None of them suffered in the shutdown.
