DHS doesn't care one way or the other for people who are less fortunate. Their stupid glitches cause all kinds of problems for people, yet who the heck cares over there?

29 years ago, when I was working part time, going to school part time and on part time assistance (single mom), I had DHS paying part of my utility bills. I paid for them as well, but they were helping. In January, when my daughter was only 5 years old, they shut our gas off because DHS' payment had not gotten there on time. Not my fault at all, their fault, but it took nearly a week to get it back on. In January no less, with a child in the home!

It's been that way ever since. They are under paid and over worked, and some of the workers just don't give a crud about anyone's needs. I'm so thankful all that is behind me now.

My benefits should be loaded on the first of the month. My EBT card has not been loaded. According to customer service my card will be loaded on the fifth of this month. Fixed...No. The problem is not fixed, I am still with out the food. I hope parents with children received their benefits on time!

The state of Michigan should have paid for your mother's birth control!

Of course they need to start drug testing them all for food stamps and welfare cash assistance i am tired of seeing welfare h o e s mothers keep having babies! and force them back to school if they did not finished!

Really? Is that how it works?

From reading the headline "Bridge Card problems fixed", I was guessing that they had ended the program. But, alas..........

Why? So you would get more assistance? Or so society would have hungry addicts? Should we test for caffeine and nicotine then bar those who test positive from eating? Or should we test only for drugs your in opposition of?
