Sometimes you cannot make up what happens around you in life.
At a WalMart, a lady told the clerk and I that she needed her food stamps. And she was proud of that, “because I work and still need help. And I report everything I make.”
I did the math. She and two daughters get food stamp help. Here in Texas that is about $123/month. (See here).
Times that by 3 people. And divide by $10 per hour. And divide that by 4 weeks in a month. She would need to work at a second job about 9 hours a week to replace the benefits she felt she deserved.
Why doesn’t she feel her kids deserve her working to provide for them?
Why was she with her boyfriend, instead of working?
I really doubt he could not make up the difference. But, if he doesn’t have to make up the difference. And if she doesn’t report the boyfriend, because he is not her husband, then why shouldn’t he allow the government to support her?
Because it is bankrupting the country?
Because her daughters will have to pay for the benefits she took?
Welfare should be short term, no more than a year. And it should not be an enabler, nor should it become deserved.
And it should never be given to the Muslim immigrants that our country is bringing in and not talking about.
What do you think?
