Nobody can predict death, but if you are a parent with children and dependent on someone's income to raise those children...you dang sure should be buying a life insurance policy to provide for your children in the event of an untimely death. How 'bout that for being a responsible parent? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
If you are getting any of the taxpayer's money to support your family or pay your bills, it is our business.
I did have a life insurance policy which only paid for his burial. And we don't get any other assistance besides food stamps. And we qualify, which obviously means we need it. I can only work so much.

Amazing. You have two kids with no daddy? How does that work, scientifically? And I always thought it took two to Tango.
If your paycheck is "lousy" it's time for you to find another job, get another job or lower your standard to living to live within your means. If you are "barely scraping by on what they are GIVING you" it's time to get out there and make better for yourself, that is the American way. If you are expecting government to do it for you, you are cutting your own throat so don't complain that you're bleeding to death. It's your own fault.
He died, jerk. I do live within my means. I don't drink, smoke or do drugs. I don't have cable or internet or even a phone. I can't afford to go to college, especially since you people would rather I didn't spend "your" money (a grant/scholarship) to go. I'm not EXPECTING anyone to do it for me, just did what i had to do to get by. Get off your high horse!!!

I think there are a very small number of people who should qualify for assistance and if your story is true, you fall into that category. Sorry for your loss and can't imagine being in your shoes. I have been lucky in life. I grew up without much, worked my way through college and now have a great job and am healthy. What more can one ask for? Wish you the best and hope you see a day when you don't have to require assistance.

So, you had an inadequate life insurance policy, and how is that the fault of the taxpayers? It is your choice to purchase a life insurance policy to protect your family in the event of a parent's death, and your responsibility as a parent to purchase such a policy that will pay enough to maintain your family's financial stability. Obviously, you didn't do that. So, why should the taxpayers be providing for your children because you made that irresponsible decision?

Thank you. I am hopefully nearing that point. I appreciate the few out there like you who actually understand, rather than ridicule and point fingers.

Never said it was their responsibility. And are you so ignorant that you neglect the fact that, as a member of the working and tax paying community myself, I am paying into the very services I receive???? I didn't make an irresponsible decision by having a life insurance policy that didn't cover, it happens. And you're so friggin perfect????????

So, the Wi-Fi may be free, but the device you're using to access it wasn't. You could sell that toy to buy food for your own kids. Why should we be feeding your kids while you have toys that aren't necessary? The only things necessary to sustain life are air, water and food (in that order) so anything else is gravy, including your cell phone or computer which are toys you can't afford if the taxpayers are buying your food. I don't have a cell phone, but then again, I feed my own children and pay my own bills...because I am a responsible parent.

I agree.. when you see douche-bags on here trying to sell their food stamp cards and justify it, its time to cut everyone off under 65.

Then you are being a silly mother. Your kids are due the social security that your deceased husband will not use. You will be their representative payee. Get yourself down to the social security office and get what your husband had coming to help raise and educate those kids!
