ALMOST CALLED MY CONGRESSMAN TODAY I was saddened and disguisted at something i witnessed this afternoon... Im broke like everyone else in here so im pinching pennies. We are really low on food so i took a bit of what we have left in savings and went to Our Local Discount Food chain (sav-a-lot). i got some of the bare essentials and went to check out... There was a middle eastern family in front of us in line with 3 HEAPING CARTS OF GROCERIES!!!!!.... I thought to myself "how can they afford that" They pulled out There welfare credit card and after that the total of the bill cam to about $20 for $600 in groceries... i figured no big deal they are probably jobless and have a large family and barely scraping by.... i paid for my $25 dollars in groceries and went to the parking lot Where i saw them loading the 3 carts of groceries in to a Brand New 2009 LEXUS SUV with 30 day tags???? so They have enough money for a 60k Brand new car but our hard earned tax dollars are paying for them to eat like kings every night???? And we only eat 1 decent meal a day because thats all we can afford right now. what a damn shame!

The go get one! Look, this is America! It's a great big land FULL of opportunities. Go in and grab one for yourself instead of sitting there, whining about welfare. The fact is that, of all the civilized countries in the world, we give the LEAST welfare. No one has it better than winners in America, but also, no one has it worse than losers. You want to see losers living high off the hog, go to Britain or France.

    I see this type of behavior too all the time, we just need to get together and learn to scam the system, I'm tired of being honest it's not getting me anywhere. I think of Nadya Suleman (Octomom) and I seriously want to go into fits of rage. I can have 14 kids and be a miracle of science, sign me up!!!! I want a new house and papparazzi taking my picture all day while other people take care of my 14 retarded kids, not only can I do it but I'll enjoy it too!!!!

    I see what you're saying, I worked for a company and made $7.00/hour on a part-time job and the food stamp office told me that I qualified for $12.00 in food stamps, they said because I had received financial aid that that counted as income, even though most of it went to pay for schooling, go figure.

    The system is screwed, my mother has had polio cancer and now has a terminal disease and she doesn't qualify for SSDI and works cleaning houses, she received SSI but that's because she is retired but I know of a woman who has an illness that you can't really prove (RSD, Multiple Personalities) and she gets tons of assistance. The system is so ass backward that you really have to be able to scam the system in order to get any help. I'm really pissed about this whole financial mess due to the fact that I (like many other people) did not get involved in owning a home that I could not afford yet I feel like I'm paying for someone else's mistakes. There's tons of assistance for people with mortgages but there is no rental assistance whatsoever, renters make up 33% of the housing market vs. owners 34% yet we have no help, it's like we don't exist. I thought that I would apply for bankruptcy and found that I can't even do that, you have to have a regular fulltime job to file for Chapter 13 (don't have) or assets to file for Chapter 7 (don't have), but the credit history makes it impossible to get certain types of jobs, which makes it impossible to find jobs to pay off the bills. Who created this system, it only benefits rich people.

    Oh.. boy.. Quoting you on that.. "you have to have a regular fulltime job to file for Chapter 13 (don't have) or assets to file for Chapter 7 (don't have), but the credit history makes it impossible to get certain types of jobs, which makes it impossible to find jobs to pay off the bills." Everheard of "Catch 22",,, I made one up years ago, I it "Catch 33", now it is time for a version upgrade..."Catch 44" I am right there also.. right where you are, up there in the quoted part... sigh....

    Fortunately Im lucky int the fact that I dont really have any substantial debt so i dont have to worry about filing bankruptcy.... I own reasonably priced home we have both our cars paid off, less two payments on one of them, and only about $2500 on one credit card... and i couldnt get another CC now if i tried (boy have i tried) the way that lending practices are ( im young). But im scared in the fact that this month with what little my fiance makes we have to decide between our mortgage payment of about $900, or Food, gas, electric, etc

    What is polio cancer? I know how you feel. My step mom audits for the SSA (she is not a social worker so she doesn't decide who is disabled just wether or not they are mistreating the money) she has seen some people who are honestly disabled and others who it's so stupid like one woman whose husband had a problem with authority figures so he was disabled. Another family who claimed all their children were retarded. She spoke to all of them and they seemed all right to her.

    My mother has had polio and cancer in her past. I totally agree with you, with alot of these people their only illness's where partying and drugs, there's nothing wrong with them that would truthfully prevent them getting a job.

    Shit, I thought I was doing the responsible thing by not bringing a bunch of brokeass kids into the world. Oh BTW, it's not just hispanics and blacks, as a former homeless person I stayed in a shelter with lots of mother's with kids and many of them where white. It seems that alot of these mothers missed the class on birth control and preventing pregnancies. I was on the bus the other day and there was a woman talking about how she was pregnant, this would be her 4th little rugrat and how she had just gotten out of County(jail), her mother is taking care of the other 3. When your life is that trifling you need to tie your tubes.

    It's a total looser's story, made up to feel better about their own inadequacies. Yes, welfare breeds dependency, but the stories of welfare queens are largely made up stories. I liked Reagan but his welfare queen story never could be corroborated. The flaw in the story is that welfare just isn't that much money. You can't buy a new car with the proceeds from welfare. If you're on welfare and are driving a new car, you committed some sort of fraud against the dealer or the financing entity. But that's separate from being on welfare.

    You don't know what you are talking about....... There are many forms of welfare and there are alot of people that are kicking it on SSDI. It's not that they get so much money from the government it's that they qualify for a ton of programs once they get labeled as disabled. Low income housing, Medicare (free health care), Food Stamps or food donation programs, Free education, low cost childcare and a host of other shit that doesn't apply to other people not on SSDI.

    All of that added together doesn't make for a cushy lifestyle, certainly not buying new cars.

    You can do all that if you know how to scam My friend had a tenant on welfare. She had a small child. She had designer clothes, a decent car, nice jewelry, the works. She claimed her boyfriend (not the baby's father) bought them for her. He got phone s from two people with a short time who claimed that she put her down on a reference for apartments in two different boroughs (NYC). After talking for a while to one of them, he got very suspicious. Her reported her to the welfare office. Turns out she figured out a way to collect THREE welfare checks and sets of benefits, and her mother was collecting on two. she was trying to get at least 2 more using the other addresses. Welfare cut both her and the mother off. (although the child still gets food and medical care as she is a minor). I don't know how she did it - false SS numbers is one of my guesses - but she did.

    my neighbor's ex was trying to do that she was getting welfare in Nj and wanted to use his address in ny. She didn't say why at first and he told her oh I live in nj now, are you applying for a job because I can have my old neighbor forward mail if it comes there for you. No she told him she wanted to collect welfare in ny as well as in nj. he asked her why she needed it as she didn't have any children and she worked. She explained that she was working part time under the table and getting welfare in nj but wanted to collect a second check in ny!
