If you couldn't afford the first one then why have the second? If you couldn't Afford 2 then why add a third?! Tired of all these unwed mothers having all these kids! You should know how it happens by now. The health department gives out condoms and birth control for free, but let me guess you can't find a babysitter to watch your three kids long enough to get to the health department, right? Then you would get a job...but you can't find/afford a sitter for that either? Keep drawing foodstamps, HUD, and medicaid. Hope you enjoy those of us who works hard earned money!

I know how you feel I see this same crap over and over again in my line of work. I see people coming in to the store year after year, and I mean THE SAME people, having 3-4 kids and living on food stamps and WIC. It is young people just walking around relaxing drinking a coke getting their groceries and enjoying their day with a new baby every year, meanwhile those of us who do work for a living aren't eating as good as these people on food stamps and not working. Does no one else see the problem with this picture?! I actually heard one couple last year talking about getting their taxes back and they were leaving the kids with grandma to fly to Vegas for a week for a vacation! Lol it is absolutely the most pathetic situation I have ever seen. I work because I can't stand not to but mainly because I was brought up being taught integrity and to work to feed your family and work for what you have. I sure as heck can't fly to Vegas once a year I have to work to clothe, feed and shelter myself and my children. I have a car payment , house payment etc. I could go on and on but I guess I'll just keep on working so I can send every degenerate around to Vegas or where ever else they might want to vacation!! Bunch of pathetic losers!!

Don't expect the situation to get any better as long as we have a Democrat in the White House. And as long as welfare receipents are allowed to vote, that's not likely to change either. Would you vote for someone who threatened to take away your free ride on the back of the tax payers?

Glad I didn't graduate from ASU or I would be as dumb as the person typing the above bullsh!t.

Welfare has been around forEVER!!!! It did not cause the problems of today.

The working class ruined the economy by spending more than they make in income and filing bankruptcy later. Divorce rates are up as well. Wehn you buy a house that takes two people to make the payment and then you get divorced, the home becomes a forclosure. The bank tries to resell the home but can't because it is in need of repairs from neglect.

People on Welfare can't get credit cards. So you can't blame welfare.

If Romney would have won, he would have never ended welfare. What were you thinking?

Obama handed out a stimulus check to the entire world. If you didn't agree to any form of handout, then repay that money now!

The working class is a major part of the blame. Now quit blaming the welfare for your problem!

There are many people who receive assistance that do work. For instance, I have a good job with lots of hours, but I receive WIC. Almost anyone who applies for it gets it. I receive it, not because I'm not doing my part, but because the father of my child is not doing his in any sense of the word. The country is in debt not because of the people who receive foods stamps our whatever, but because we spend billions helping other countries and we bailed out an auto industry full of millionaires who gave themselves raises and took vacations in private jets instead of saving their companies. But way to go cutting people down. Not everyone who receives help is abusing the system. I don't have a nice car or wear expensive clothes, I don't get my nails done, and I spend ten bucks on a haircut. I make sure my family is cared for and don't live beyond my means because I believe in earning an honest living. That doesn't mean I don't need a helping hand sometimes.

If you have ever been in a situation that you needed help and HAD to apply for food stamps in order to feed your kids, you would know that you can't even get food stamps if you don't work. These people aren't laying around living the good life and enjoying endless food and money, really how stupid does someone have to be to believe that? A good portion of people that get food stamps are not enjoying themselves as they are the people behind the counter at mcdonalds or who are working but making minimum wage which is not enough to support the two or three kids they had while married but now may be single trying to make it alone. I've been there, those who haven't will never understand...unless it happens to them

They rather pay banks & credit card companies 20% & b!tch about a 1% problem called "welfare programs". I promise you they throw more of their hardworking money away on bullsh!t fees, interest & variables than they've ever contributed to the federal government:) Explaining this is beyond their intellect. I've tried many a time. Isn't it odd how our grandparents & great grandparents came from a family of at least 8 kids. You want to discuss having kids & not being able to afford them... that would be a much better example. Kids were encouraged to quit school & help support the family. Child labor laws were non existent. That was a hard life.

Sorry but you are wrong. You can get emergency assistance if you don't have a job but to get and KEEP food stamp benefits you have to work a certain number of hours per week or be going to school.

uncle obama didn't start this shit it has been going on ever sense we as a nation decided to change the tax code and make it more profitable to send manufacturing jobs overseas and then creat half as many jobs as we loose that pay half as much. when i was a kid we lived in a three bedroom home in a nice area of town (middleclass) my dad was a meat cutter at Kroger and mom stayed at home today if i was a meat cutter at kroger i couldn't afford to have my wife stay at home and i coundn't afford to even buy a house in that area of town and those houses are 40+ yrs old if you lose your middle income jobs and replace it with jobs that pay less and offer no benefits then you creat a country that has a population that is underemployed or unemployed and guess what they get help from the goverment and if this situation continues the next generation is on welfare etc. Face it the republicans are just as much to blame as the democrats the politicians are out for their pockets and we as the middle class (as always ) have to flip the bill. i say vote all them ass holes out of office

there will always be a percentage of people who will leach the system but i would bet my paycheck on the fact that most of the people on food stamps had a good paying job at one time and are shit out of luck as we speak. the percentage of federal funds spent on the poor is less that 15% of all money spent so that tells me we have other areas that need to be trimed as well.

Could your parents afford you? Pretty simple question you keep asking...but their answer would probably be , "No". I think people modify their lives & sacrafice things for children. If you Google "How much does it take to raise a child?", you may be shocked. Very few have that kind of money just hanging out in the bank. Have you even read & absorbed the longer posts explaining in detail why you're seeing more & more people on assistance? The end of 2007 started a pretty rough trend. Recession. Sorry, but we've never bounced back...I don't care what THEY say.

They honestly believe there are hoards of people (the trash of the world in their eyes) that are strategist who have this plan to shoot out children purposely to render our government penniless:) What that don't realize is the 30% we spend from the pie chart on the military. Don't get me wrong, I love my country...but, we have much more bullsh!t going on here to worry about. Ofcourse all of this foreign aid could probably help us out too:) Everyone has this myth of welfare, but when broken down between foodstamps, Hud, Medicaid & Wic....it's a small dent compared to the wrecking ball when it comes to the other spending. The way I see it...well, it just comes down to spite. Someones just mad because they don't have what they consider a luxury of being a single mom, with a man who ran out on her, along with 3 screaming kids & they call that a vacation? Really? Or a disabled person who wants to work but is trapped in a 400 square foot apartment with no means of transportation or the ability to walk. They're really living the high life there. Oh let's pick on the elderly who busted their a$$es for 50 years & now draw $800 a month & eat catfood because they don't QUALIFY for foodsamps! Seriously? These examples are just a few of what the OP is p!ssed about. I really hate obtuse people who don't get it!:)

Just because someone's not a sucker for every sob story that comes around doesn't mean they "don't get it."

Why if you are already on foodstamps, have no job, and already have one baby would you have another baby then after that baby have yet another baby...knowing all along you have no job and your boyfriend that you are making all these babies with has no job. Now tell me why someone would bring children into this world they cannot support and take care of?
