I am ill with parkinsons and tumor in lung and can not get help with medical because me and my husband own a home and 2 cars that we have paid off by working and we do not get help from any one and our annual income for us and one child is 34,000 a year and 1/2 of that goes to medical bills well I see people going to doctors for an ear ache off my husbands tax dollar and buying steak at the store and have the newest clothes and better car then me because they do not get married and live with the kids father and do not report it. The father will work and put the child on his taxes and gets earned income this is crazy if a child is getting public assistance of any type the parents should not be able to claim any taxes on them.
Welfare should be "first aid" NOT "life support." The system as it stands is an anchor around our neck that will drown us all.
I feel that Welfare should be a stepping stone for people to get back on their feet... not a crutch for generations to live on. I worked at perkins waiting tables for 5 1/2 years to support myself and pay my way through college and got a masters degree as a nurse practitioner while working full time and having a family. It was hard but so is life. If I can do it so can a lot of other people. How is it fair that I work hard and have to support people who CHOOSE to be dependent on welfare and they have better clothes, phones, and cars than I do?
Cut welfare off in 5 years, watch the birth rate drop. A LOT of so called mommies stay pregnant for our money. They get free medical, this is B.S...make the daddies work the fields for what THEY made, we tax payers did not make the babies. These types could not afford the first baby, but they keep kicking them out, wanting us to feel sorry for them...
welfae should be for the elderly and disabled or those who worked and pass a drug test why hand out money to those who cant pass drug test let alone get a job because u will need to pass a drug test to get a job
I feel that if you need help there should be a cap on how much money per month. Other states make people do community service to earn there money that would be a great idea for all states to apply, but if you have proof of a 40hr a week job that does not apply to said person. There are way too many people milking this system. If we don't stop the bleeding, this money system will fail.
