    It’s tough being a single parent thief.

    In my state (not sure about others) being a single parent means you don’t have to work, you get tons of food stamps, housing and all kinds of assistance with heating and a cell phone paid by the state.

    They would have no reason to be a thief. Nor get a job, not that I’m against it, just wish there was a work requirement to get assistance and there isn’t even that.

    I know this first hand, cause a family member is this way. Her husband passed away, she gets 600 dollars a month in food stamps, rent 90% paid for, a free cell phone, and all. She works under the table for 70 dollars a month or so she needs to pay her portion of rent. Gave up her car, gets free bus passes for the family.

    Says why bother working, the more I work the less benefits I make. Oh and I have the same family size as her, # wise and I spend half as much on food, she always has extra food stamps, offering to buy stuff for me if I give her cash. Example, I’ll buy 100 dollars of groceries for you that I don’t need if you give me 50 cash.

    It’s cheaper to pay her to sit home with her kid than providing child care so she can work. And even if there was a work requirement, who would hire her? Then there’s the problem of what happens when the child grows too old to receive state support. Who’s going to hire her? Take away all the state aid, and a good portion will commit crimes to support themselves. So now you have the children in foster care, the parents in jail, and it costs the taxpayers twice as much.

    boots and dragon: Try it before attacking it. Poverty, like bigotry, starts in the family. You lucked out, it is nothing you accomplished, so cut the arrogance. I have lived a middle-class life either side of the poverty line only because I grew up in a parsonage from the 1930s and learned how. Most don’t learn, including the pampered brats now grown up.
