You are why people have an issue with Welfare!

Usually I'm not one to care what people do, in any way. I have no problem with welfare or assistance as a temporary help. I personally am a single mother of one & I make too much money for assistance. But I've received help for Child Care costs in the past.

So... I met a woman today who receives all forms of assistance, medical, food, cash, housing, etc. At first I was like whatever, if you need it and you're working towards getting away from it do what you got to do. But then... She goes on to tell me she's trying for Baby #3!!! And she would like to have between 8-14 kids!!!!!!!!
You can't even afford the children you do have and you are unable to survive without the government why the fuck would you be trying to have more!?
That is such bullshit to me!
What are your thoughts on families who receive assistance and continue to add to their families?

I think if someone gets pregnant on welfare they should lose it.

I feel sorry for the kids, but other than that, I just don't care.

Do I think it's responsible? No. Would I put myself in that position? No. However, as long as the system fosters this type of lifestyle, then it will continue to happen. Those who are using it during hardship will bust their butt to get off as quickly as possible, those who view it as a lifestyle will continue to use it as such. 

I just do what I need to do for my family and obligations, I have no time or desire to worry about what others are doing or not doing. It won't change anything.
