Perfect commentary from getoutofthewelfaretag:
"IF she is real, and IF she is getting cash assistance, then she is in work training for a minimum of 30 hours a week and she has to provide job search logs to her caseworker on the regular.
IF she is real, and IF she is getting cash assistance, then she has a 5 year LIFETIME limit of receiving that benefit.
IF she is real, and IF she is getting cash assistance, then filing for child support from all the children’s fathers was a requirement for being approved. Meaning, if they’re not paying, that’s on them, not her.
IF she is real, and IF she is getting cash assistance, she is still broke as hell. I could barely support myself making $1200/mo, much less 4 other people who would be completely dependent on me.
But considering all of those factors, it’s pretty doubtful that she’s real,”
She’s probably not real at all. 1200 is nothing. Then she’s has 4 kids, if they are in day care that is probably all her money.
Look at it like this. Here rent is less than everywhere else, you can get two bedroom for around 600 dollars.
Okay BUT gas and electric still has to be paid. +235 dollars.
She still has to get groceries. She may be getting food stamps but again she has 4 kids. She probably will run out of food as food stamps have been cut.
Kids need clothes, they out grow shoes, coats, etc. they break things, they are involved in extra curricular activities. I’m not even going to get into how much getting for kids dressed from walmart alone can cost. If they are in sports or the arts add more money.
Oh and then how is she getting around? I think bus passes here are around 90 dollars for a zone 1 monthly. 25 for a weekly. She and Her kids will more than likely need them to get back and forth if she doesn’t have a car.
I have a honda, to fill my gas tank is 35 dollars. I’m a new driver my car insurance is 215 dollars. Does she have a warranty? Add 130 dollars a month. Oh and if she didn’t buy it out right add the car payment 170 every two weeks.
1200 dollars a month for one person goes fast.
Oh add doctor bills, medicine, co pays, trips to the barber shop, beauty salon, toys, glasses and braces to that too.
And to be fair, if our tax dollars are keeping her and her family alive we should be glad. You know what’s despicable? Billions of tax dollars being spent on wars that are killing innocent people world wide. Be enraged about that.
