Have you ever been on welfare?

This includes WIC and EBT and Medicaid. Not just cash assistance. And are you still on it?

Yup, I was for a whole month. I had just lost my job, ex & I split the next day. I collected one payment that was it.

That's not too bad. I know someone who is on it and pretty much plans to stay on it.

I had medicaid once for 8 months for my daughter. I was thankful too I got laid off suddenly right after she was born.

No, I have never received any form of public assistance, growing up or in my adult life.

I know many people like that. I lived in low income housing for about a year 10 years ago. I was so happy to move on from that place and looked forward to a better life.
