Just wondering, been hearing for years how women just have babys to get a checks.. Always wondered how much we give them. Need to be fixed after the first. Breeding like dogs is cruel to the kids who don't have a fair chance.

There are some who need help, and others who are taking advantage of the system. It needs to be investigated and regulated better.

<quoted text> Well, pull my chain. I see this abuse of the system everyday. There are women getting section 8 housing, no kids no job. Now people drawing food stamps can get cash back when they use their food stamps. That helps the drug trade. Theres one women that I know of here in town that is drawing almost $3000.00
a month in disability from SSI for herself and 4 children, they all get a check funny, none of the kids have the same daddy. What's wrong with this picture? Notice I didn't mention race>
Well put, thats what needs to be addressed.

This is a crying dadgum shame! Why do u even want to kno how much these women are getting!? Are u hearing of any kids being found dead from starving to death!? NO! cuz the welfare checks feed em. Some of these women get that money honestly & if you want to kno so bad call to dhs & ask... They can only get that check for 2 years & if they have more kids NO they can't get it on the new ones! Once the check is signed for that's it 2 years no new add ins & they actually make u meet with someone at workforce to try to find work! I have a friend who gets this check on her son & we are WHITE! she lost her job in this shit hole town & had no where else to turn!
Where are tyhe fathers? I know you don't know who he was among all that you slept with. Now the state has to take care of the kids. You are to da.. stupid.

actually if you would have read the posts correctly you would have discovered that this childs father passed away.. I mean not that I need to justify that because as I said before all of you people on here are perfect and have NEVER needed government assistance. So therefore if u go to college or have a child who does & they get assistance ya better stop cuz your tax dollars go to
that!! I'm sure all of these negative people on here are mad because they got turned down for a welfare check because they are the ones who had kids with deadbeats! This man would have proudly took care of his child but now his widow & his son suffers. But luckily there is some help out there for them. I pray for cold hearted people like you every night!
Yea people just don't understand things happen sometimes. People die, get laid off and sickness. We all know there is people who take advantage of the system everyday. The only solutions is maybe checks and balances put on emergency aid. But some of these jokers on here want to stop feeding kids totally. I don't understand how people can be so cold ,and so selfish.

There are lots and lots of people who do abuse this help and that is not something that should be tolerated.. But that's something the legal department should fix.

Yes where are the fathers? Get a woman pregnnt and run off scared with their tail between their legs! Why does the dtate not do a better job of tracking these losers down and making them pay child support? It's not always the womans fault. Though i agree i dont understand why some women continue to have children in poverty. All im saying is sometimes the street runs both ways.

If the state would enforce the child support laws these women well most of them would not need goverment assistance. I cant understand women who have 5 children from 5 different men. It makes no sense. Which in effect creates a chain of children who grow up with the same moral values. Why?because they know nothing different.

Well I know a chic that is single and has a small child, working two jobs, one for cash, getting $400 month food stamps, which by the way she sells for the most part, lives in a low income apartment, has government insurance on the kid, gets child support and is fixin to get a breast inhancement. Apparently she's got it figured out on how to beat the system. Well sorry to rush off, but I gotta get to work so I can help take care of the ones that won't. Notice, I didn't say the one's that can't work, it's for the ones that won't.

It doesn't make anyone white trash for needing assistance. I guess it makes her white trash for the babies father passing away & her getting LAID OFF from her job. That doesn't make her white trash at all! It seems to me that you must b perfect because you've never needed help!
Don't buy that answer. If the father passed away, she should be drawing a social security check for the kid. Not welfare. Don't tell me there is no jobs in this area. I work everyday for a place that can't get enough people. My husband just came from the unemployment line. There is jobs here, you just have to get off your dump and find it.

She tried getting social security on the child but was denied.. She now works but still gets government assistance to make ends meet. I'm not sure why she was denied the social security on the man they lived in Kentucky and moved here shortly before he passed. She was very upset about needing this assistance & no she doesn't get all the extras like government insurance & child care. She does her part. I do kno that there are several thousand ppl in this place that do not! You see them everyday walking around in nice clothes & driving nice cars dropping their kids off at daycare to go spend food stamps. Sad thing is the government money paid for the car clothes daycare & the food!! Ridiculous!

Im sorry to say but to many men run off and leave these women with out any finacial support. Like i said earlier i dont agree with a woman have several children by multiple men. There are a few cases where those women are entitled to get help and if my tax dollar goes to that so be it. It's not all the womans fault!

If you see someone using a EBT (SNAP/Food stamp) card and they get cash back...it is NOT from the food stamps. You people are dumb. The TEA (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) benefit checks are electronically (hence the "E" in EBT) deposited on the card also, that's why they are asked by the cashier "is it EBT food or cash." The TEA check is only given for 2 years max and you have to follow all the requirements of the Arkansas Workforce Center...not really much to do with DHS actually. The Workforce Center requires you to register with them and with ALL the temporary agencies in town before you can even get started. If you do not have your HS diploma or GED you must be currently enrolled in a program to aquire that. I have a Bachelors degree but because of a disability have been unable to work and therefore receive a whopping $202 each month on 3 children. No, their father (oh yeah, the SAME man, not a different one for each kid)does not pay child support. But Wow..that's really taking away from your thousands-of-dollar a year salaries right? I'm so sure.

Notice that is $202.00 FOR EACH KID. That is 606.00 a month food stamps on her kids. I would guess she is getting another $202.00 for herself also so that brings food stamps to $808.00. Then they would get free ARKIDS and daycare. 3 kids she would get housing and if the kids are under 5 they get--I forgot what that is called but amounts to alot a month. It's a racket. Bad thing is so many that do need help can't get it. My family could eat real good on $808.00 worth of free food of any kind and if I'm not mistaken the 3 little ones get another that is over 100.00 a month for cereal juice eggs and etc.

Here's the thing about it, it IS his thousands of dollars a year salary. He earned it not you. You've got it so bad, go after your ole man and get it from him. Why haven't you? Something sounds funny to me.

All people want to do is put down anyone who is getting help from the state. Nobody knows how they got there or what could have happened. I dont believe its all womaen living off the state. There are elderly and people who have lost jobs. Have a heart people.
