How much money can a family of four make a month on welfare?
I was just in Wal-Greens and the clerk, who I know, was complaining that her full time job working for an elementary school in Florida cut her income by 3% to allegedly contribute to the retirement system. The school hasn't given a raise in 6 years and their insurance now won't cover all sorts of medical costs that it used to cover. She has a second job at Wal-Greens to help her and her 3 kids get by. She has 4 people in her family. She said a woman who is on welfare comes in frequently. This welfare woman has 3 kids. Each kid gets $300 cash on a food card every month. They get free medical care and free prescriptions. The mother on welfare is covered in gold and she has designer handbags. The mother on welfare has never had a job and is clearly . . . retired.

Two questions:

1. So, in real dollars (meaning, what you or I would have to earn to have the same benefits), how much money can a welfare family of 4 (a mother and three kids) make each month?

2. How do you and I get on this retirement plan?

The first question is real, the second question is rhetorical.

I see this crap going on all the damn time and it pisses me off. As for your question #2..do you really want to get on this retirement plan? I sure the hell wouldnt..i want to live my life knowing i didnt mooch off the system because of sheer laziness. I am not saying all that use these benefits are lazy but there is no denying that its clearly abused and has made people lazy. Again..not sure why you are asking about how to get on this system..but i feel good going to bed at night knowing i earned my living and put in effort instead of trying to beat the system like so many do.

Re: How much money can a family of four make a month on welfare?
The woman on welfare did not buy her gold or designer handbags with a welfare payment. They are not large enough to cover things like that. She is either dealing drugs, or is acquainted with someone who sells drugs, fake bags, and robs jewellry stores.

I believe that genuine people on welfare have no money left before the end of the week.

I believe that most people who work these days, and earn a substantial amount more, also have no money left at the end of the week.

This is due to the expenses they incur keeping themselves healthy and well presented, and travelling costs, to be able to go to work.

Both are a no-win situation in this modern age. hf

First how do you know the gold is real? second how do you know the handbag is real? people on welfare and foodstamps dont have a good life like a working person unless you like living in poverty. As for medical yes they get free health insurance but as for dental its pull a tooth no filling or saving it. I would hate to go on welfare, I like to many good things in life to settle for nothing but living and getting by.

It is about say 750 to 800 dollars for a family of four in CA. Food stamps would be probably about 350 to 450. Parent must work 20 hours a week for some programs, then the benefits would be cut.
A two-bedroom apt. in CA is about 900 to 1300 outside the cities.

It depends on whether or not you can collect SSI. If all family members collect and also receive cash assistance, here in Michigan, you could get about 3200 a month, + your bridge card, + Medicaid.

welfare is a precipice to the culling of the useless

FREEDOM OF SPEECH:
Alan Isaacman
The People Vs Larry Flynt
"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you've heard a lot here today and I won't try to go back over it all. But you have to go back in that room and make some decisions and there is one thing I want to make very clear to you before you do. I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything. And that's not freedom. That is not freedom. So, be careful. Thank you."

it depends on which state you live in. Welfare while federally funded it is administered by the states. This also applies to food stamps and section 8. Section 8 can even vary county to county

I don't think they take families of four. They support mothers with children. If there's a man in the house the rules change.
