And you probably get some stuff for yourself as well
wow Marty, didn't expect that from you. No offense, you just seem most of the time to be a nice guy.
The woman probably gets barely enough to get by, did you miss the post where her mother is ill? She's not 18 with 6 kids taking the govt for everything its got. I mean I don't know her or her daughter but it seems to me the system doesn't give the amount of help needed unless you've made ripping off the system your career, and a sick old lady doesn't fit the stereotypicial career sponge. I could be wrong but 20-40 years ago ppl didn't consider welfare as a govt job, just a stepping stone to get them over the hump to lead a productive life.
I'm sure there were a few leeches but it wasn't considered ok by anyone back then to live off the system so I'm guessing, this womans mother probably isn't a career leech.
