Here in Australia my partner lost his job, we have one child who at the time was only 2mnths old and we weren't eligible for assistance because we had too much savings, our money was secured for our child's future not for us to spend on holidays clothes and cars and because of it we were punished it took him 3 months to get another job and no thanks to the employment agencies who didn't give a stuff! I have paid taxes all my life and when I needed it most the system didn't help.

I have 2 kids, same father. I'm getting divorced after 16 years. I'm reluctantly having to get health insurance through the state and maybe other benefits. I didn't plan this. I didn't breed to get on welfare. Circumstances happened. You won't see me with fake nails, fake hair, a nice car. I TOTALLY am on board with drug testing anyone who applies for benefits. I will be going to school to get a career that I can support my kids. I'm using this as a hand up NOT a hand out. Please don't out me in the same boat as those who abuse the system. Some of us are just trying to do our best. I will not stay on bit any longer than needed. You can't group us ALL together.

So you are disabled. Do you draw a disability check? Have you been turned down? If you do, then your children should also draw from you. And you have the nerve to say because you only get $202 a month government aid, that by the way, my tax dollars covers, and that because I make thousands of dollars a year that I shouldn't bitch. I don't get it. I don't want other people's tax dollar supporting me or my kids. Don't get me wrong, I have no problem helping a truly needy person, but to act like it is owed to you because I actually work and make money, and you don't. This my friend, is what is wrong with the world. I don't owe you anything and neither does anyone else. By the way, if the whopping $202 a month of free money is not appreciated I'll gladly send you my address and you can mail it to me. It belongs to me anyway
Let me clear this up a little, stereotypes figures are just a little off. A welfare recipient receives $749 dollars per child a month! That is why you see single mothers out there with 15 damn kids with no fathers, because the government is paying them to drop babies like a baby factory! I work in a place that is in the know on these figures and that is just the money per child. Let's talk about HUD, Section 8, or free houses, free furniture vouchers, free utilities, free phones with free minutes, free food, free health care, SSI checks, SS checks, welfare checks, the 6K-8K income tax RETURNS at the end of the year, sometimes free gas for that 70K vehicle some people on welfare own. Who the hell wants to work anymore?

But fannie mae is getting bailouts(your tax dollars) after taking peoples homes cps is getting billions(again your tax dollars) for taking peoples children ...but instead of speaking against the bigger issue you attack the less fortunate....and btw the way our economy is headed you all are a step away from the damn ebt line that is continuously growing by the day in our country so..GLASS HOUSE
You will not see me in the EBT line, if our country comes to that, they won't have EBT anyway!!! lol I can live off the land, been there and done that, and you? lol Most people will starve to death because they are so used to people hand feeding them! Sally Sue get's a whole lot more money than you say and for a hell of a lot longer than 60 months, tell that lie to someone that does not know better. The problem is Sally Sue and the other billion people just like her! Fannie Mae was about to get theirs until Obama stepped in and bailed them out giving the CEO a nice million dollar bonus! VOTES! So take that up with your President!

people like me who are struggling need welfare the ones who use it & keep having kids now thats not right they should get off their fat asses they dont go to school & they probably buy drugs with their money but low lives trying to get on me about me needing it thats called trolling you have nothing better to do i feel sorry for you
I'm not sure if you're for real or not. You are using foul language interspersed throughout each sentence which usually shows the lack of ability to form a logical argument or defense so you resort to name calling.

I'm not trying to put you down. In fact I hope this helps you. You did indeed create the situation that requires you to now seek tax payer funds to get by.(It's not buy in that context, it's by) You need to understand that you can't join in the welfare bashing as you are one yourself. To us there is not really a line. I have met a few women that were widowed and I am ok with them using welfare, in fact I have even helped them personally.

But this huge wave of teenaged to 22 yr old girls getting pregnant without a husband or a steady boyfriend/father of the child, without an education, usually with no job skills and they demand services and demand and get the Pell grant and then essentially are paid to attend some low level community college (any funds not used get sent right back to you in cash) all the while refusing to work at all because, "I'm not working some crappy job. I'm bettering myself in school!" To us those crappy jobs are expressly for people like you. I'm so tired of this entitlement mentality. This, "I DESERVE" mentality.

No one is too good to work a crappy job. None of us. I have much respect for the men and women working for low wages in bad job environments. And if I ever have to work a job like that again, notice I said again, I will.

Thankfully my choices have led me to marry a great man that makes enough for me to stay at home and raise our ONE child. No assistance at all and we pay a lot of taxes. We don't get HUD, my husband had to pay to go to college himself, we don't get giant EIC refunds.

Stop using bad language and sounding so low class. I'm sure you're not that bad in real life. Good luck.

STFU.. Learn to keep your legs closed before you have completed your education and saved some REAL money and find the pig you slept with (If you remember who it was!!). Stop being a freeloader and DARE to DEMAND handouts.

I really am tired of hearing people complain about how their situation is deserving of assistance. Why not go about this in the right way?

I worked my butt of in high school, got a full ride to college and I'm still working while in school. I know that in order to provide the kind of life I want, I have to get a good job and save up enough money BEFORE I even start thinking about having kids. I pay for everything myself on my part time job, my car, insurance, books, food while at school (that's not included in my scholarship) without any help from the government. And if I didn't get a scholarship, I'd be taking out loans which I'd pay back myself.

All you crazy women not thinking before you act really piss me off. How dare you give us all a bad name?! Close your god damn legs if you can't afford to have a child. Make sure you got that douchebag locked down in marriage before you reproduce. Don't go for men who think welfare is a viable option when it comes to providing for your family. You all have made some stupid choices. Make sure you are working a full time job, even after you have a child. Tons of kids are in daycare every single day and they're all just fine. If you really need help then fine but from here all I see are stay at home uneducated loser moms who REFUSE to work and wonder why they can't put food on the table.

There are also certain things you should and should not be doing while on welfare. If I see you with an iPhone, fake nails, highlights, face full of makeup, designer clothes, etc. you need a reality check. You should not be buying candy and ice cream with your food stamps. At work, I see women come in and use their EBT card for fucking candy. How are you supposed to feed your family on borrowed money when you're not buying milk, eggs, bread, meats, etc. You should not be buying candy! It doesn't have any nutritional value. Besides, it rots teeth, and how do you think you're paying for dental work in welfare?! Use your brains. God gave them to you for a reason.

If everyone had the mentality you do, everyone would be on assistance programs and NO ONE would be paying into taxes. I'd love for you to see how much you really can't afford in a world like that.

You sound like a typical welfare dirtbag
i completely agree. They should be given the shot, drug tested, and less assistant. Where's the desire to go to work. Why do their kids get free college. They have children to do this. Forget getting married. They wouldn't get all the benefits. They end up making more than my husband and me. To think I have a bachelor degree. It's sickens me. They don't work and have it all. The best phones, cable, Internet,etc. oh yah, so do their children. Don't forget insurance. I must be the stupid one or the government has a secret plan to destroy the middle working class.

I don't understand why everybody is mad. Some need assistance,but really to many abuse it. I'm sick of them having more than me. Not paying shit and producing more like them. If I can't hardly support these dead beats how will my children. I'm middle class and they are actually bringing in more having the best phones, cable,food, health care than my husband and me. It's bullshit. My children take loans for college and I pay on one myself. I think I may be poorer than them. They seem to have the best while my husband and I are slaves to surviving. Maybe we should just say.$$&& and join them.

WOW!! THINK any further debate on welfare needn't go on. ASHLEY, you are surely the most moronic, Ebonic, stupid person to have ever graced a post with your presence. YOU are the epitome of TRASH and I pray that you do not reproduce ever again. People as ignorant as you shouldn't be permitted to have or keep their children. If your fiance has an 1/8 of your intelligence he will run far away from you. You're the reason people detest those receiving benefits.

For Christ sake, Keep your legs closed.. Have some shame in not feeling good about being the scumbag bottom feeding leech.

Most freeloaders are NOT there bacause of accident but because of their pathetic choices!!

So, STFU and learn to work instead of stealing..

Well some men hide from paying child support and from the sounds of it she did work and some people do need the help. Disability sometimes takes along time to get. So lets not hate on people who need help. My husband served our country and is disabled and he is waiting on his disability which could take a year or more and I work a full time job but you know I had to go get food stamps....so does that make me a bad person too? Some people should check their ignorance and have a heart. Also get educated on things before you start talking.

Dont be defensive and hide behind a sob story. Most people know plenty of freeloaders sucking on hard working people sitting and producing babies and not the lifestyle of a person in REAL need.

So come out of your bull shit Ignorance and see what the real world nonsense is going on.

Also nothing to be proud of in being a freeloader. A lot of people have it a lot tougher than you and still they stand up and EARN and feed their family and live within their means...
