if one only get said amount of 205.00 how do u explain the amount of groceries are bought in 1 shopping order by someone who gets welfare. Sometimes they spend upwards of 400.00. Thats 2 shopping carts full of items such as top notch meat & seafood i.e T-Bones Lobsters Crab u name it I've seen it. Oh don't get me wrong they too buy loads of junk food bakery items sodas candy frozen dinners on us the working people who pay their way to live & eat which most of the time is way better then the working man. These welfare people also have CREDIT CARDS who pays that bill. WE DO. So I ask whose the stupid ones here?

Now they are informing a blind call about who is already under investigation? Doubtful.

As the overall number of Americans collecting disability has increased, the ratio of full-time workers to disability beneficiaries has decreased.

In December 1968, 1,295,428 Americans collected disability and 65,630,000 worked full-time. Thus, there were about 51 Americans working full-time for each person collecting disability at that time. In January 1997, the last time the number of disability beneficiaries declined, 4,385,374 Americans collected disability and 104,900,000 worked full-time. Thus, there were then about 24 Americans working full-time for each person collecting disability.

In January 2013, with a record 8,830,026 Americans collecting disability and 115,918,000 working fulltime, there were only 13 Americans working full-time for each person collecting disability.

In Westmoreland County, 15% of the population collects SSD.

In Westmoreland County, 30% of the population receives some sort of government assistance (ergo, lives below the Federal Poverty Level, which is $15,130/two people and slightly less for one person).

In Westmoreland County, 100% of the -- Medicaid-grabbing non-profits established to help the indigent, enroll the indigents' children in SSD, so the family can earn more money. This is why so many more kids now have autism and ADD and ADHD, because the:

-----non-profits, locally, living off of Medicaid

routinely enroll their clients' children in SSD, so that the family can live.

What this really means is:

-----non-profits want the families on their roles, so the non-profits can be as well on the government dole,

For the businessperson, there's endless MONEY to be made off of the indigent in the United States.

-----case workers

-----social workers

-----LANDLORDS

-----real estate developers

-----non-profits billing Medicaid

-----the TAXI companies are making thousands of dollars a year off of Medicaid clients

-----MDs and other medical professional

When ALL of the above give up their "cut" of making money off of the poor, maybe the poor can get the help they need to get out of poverty???

I bet 3% of every government program actually goes to a poor person, and 97% of every government program goes to administration of the program and the scum of the earth who live off of the poor -- those listed above -- who all know damn well that they are nothing to the poor, and that they provide nothing to the poor. Most keep their mouuths shut, to keep the CASH TRAIN rolling on in.

I've always experienced that people who are happy in their lives do not begrudge others getting help. In your case, you're probably miserable and that's why you focus on those far less fortunate than you.

It's easier to look -- down -- and feel all high and mighty than it is to look up and see how little you actually have.

She's the weird little girl that doesn't get picked for anything. You're right. She picks her nose, rubs it on the underside of her desk, and thinks that no one notices.
