You do not know what you are talking about. In this State you can only get assistance for 18 months period. That's in your life time. Years ago people could draw a check and get stamps as long as there was a child in the house. That's no longer true.Nothing I said was a white lie.How am I enabling any one? Because I did the work and found out the truth instead of believing your BS? I did not Lie or exaggrate.
You do the work, find out the truth before you start calling people liars.Just so you know that young man was my grandson. They got no government help at all because they did not qualify. Not made up story just facts.

Betty some people are very comfortable with the Lies they have been told. You can not sway them with the Truth. Facts are lost on them. This person will not look into the facts of the matter, they will continue to spout the lies they have been told. I hope your grandson and his wife are doing well now. Good luck to them.
yep

Here is an incomplete list of “welfare” that is offered in the State of Indiana. TANF and ADFC (cash given to welfare recipients) is for each child under the age of 18 years. 18 years is the time limit on TANF. SNAP is the name of the food stamp “entitlement” no time limit stated in the eligibility. No time limit for public housing, with cable tv. Government issued cell phones are forever. HHW and HIP are Welfare health insurance plans. DFR child care income eligibility. Medicaid no time limit. Vocational Rehabilitation Services does have 18 months time limit.
You say that there are no 3rd generation welfare recepients? I wonder about the rest of your story.

Most people do not know the current rules. They assume you can live on Tanf for ever. You can't ,and the Larger families don't even draw money for each child.Yes you can draw on children under 18 ,, but not for over 18 months.Some counties require you work for them to draw what you get.It is not Your grandmas Welfare. This is why Unemployment is lower. A person with kids has to work even if its fast food or washing dishes.So those of you blaming Welfare for your woes should find out the truth before you blame others.I saw some one say people should turn to the Church for help instead of Food Stamps, Where do you think the Church gets the money to help?

Yes, but, with government housing, food stamps, ssi and unemployment, it's possible to scrape by forever living on government handouts. There are many people who work occasionally, have a couple of minimum wage jobs a year, crap out a few kids and manage to get by on nothing but apathy and assistance.

You really have no knowledge of what your talking about.This is whats wrong with this site. No one has to prove any thing they can just say what ever myth they want to and claim it to be fact.

Did anyone get a letter stating the value of their property? Mine has gone down in value but yet my property taxes went up this year.

Very good point! Eliminate property taxes all together, go to a higher sales tax, then all the deadbeats and illegals can pay their fair share. If we can get everybody in the game then those that just "take" might not have their hand out so much and waste might not be as big of an issue. It's easy to spend other peoples money friviously.

You're living in the 90's Keep. Today TANF only lasts a short while, and if not working, the recipient must fulfill a required time in a program called IMPACT,. It helps people re-enter the work force. Only dependant children draw TANF. Adults do not, and then it is WAY under 300.00 a month per child with a cap on the number of dependants in the household. Food Stamps, or SNAP, depend on the total income of the household. I know a woman who makes 9.50 an hour with four kids who gets 250.00 a month in SNAP. Try feeding 4 kids on that. Not counting the non-edible items like soap, etc. Do people cheat? Of course. But that risk does not condone letting children go hungry for the lack of the adults in their life.

If you are going to play this game you need to do more than make statements.
