I was at a dinner party last night and one of the ladies was talking about a person she knew that has a business degree but she can't find a job that would make as much money as she gets from being on welfare. So she gets to stay at home with her children and get paid. I honestly think that we should take advantage of all the breaks we can get from the government because it's our tax money anyway but how long is long enough ya know?

My never to be humble opinion says that its never ok to sit at home and collect welfare. This woman has children, the gov., should be using the resources to make the father pay for the kids not the taxpayer. And if her husband/boyfriend is in the picture and also on welfare, than shame on the both of them. Great question by the way.

that is so wrong!!!!!!! I have a degree and can't find a job in my area, but if I could I'd definitely be out there working. I'm not living off welfare either and even when I was a single mother working a crappy job I did not quit just because I could get more from the system!

That is so comendable you are an inspiration. I wish more people were willing to fight for life like you are. It is hard for people to get anywhere in life if they just give up.
