I don't get what's the big deal about welfare. Even with welfare, our food banks aren't exactly keeping up with the demand, so without welfare, we'd be in a hole. Take away free lunch, and our kids would be screwed. Are you a hungry senior citizen? There may be help for you. I got off track, but what I was trying to say is that there aren't mustache twirling hordes of people hoping to get rich off of government aid. I wonder why people think that folks are always getting rich off of these unlikely schemes, such as having a baybee for the child support or popping out ten kids for the welfare. Do folks really think that people would rather not be able to get a whole bowel movement out because some kid is banging on the door yelling mooommy! mommy! than get a job in which they can go home and actually sleep?
Also, $1000 on a two year old, and folks are begrudging kids of similar age food.
