Let's get out the crying towels

I know the entitlement recipients will not like these thoughts.

She knew, per the article, her benefits would end; they were only to be provided for a short time frame. Was she not seeking alternative options during this time? Why was she shocked?

She has 3 children under the age of 5. I assume the age for the eldest as he is in Pre-K. He may only be 4.

If you're on a fixed or limited income, why have additional children for whom you apparently will not be able to afford the minimum necessities?

What type of government aid would she be eligible if she voluntarily walked away from her current job?

Sorry, but everyone is scrambling in this economy. How can anyone think about walking away from a job so they can qualify for more government subsidies? Sooner or later, the hemoraging government check book will be out of blood for those who do truly need assistance.

This one has other options.

Have she and her husband considered alternate work schedules so there is an adult available 24/7? One could work days and one could work nights and week-ends. I hope DSS takes that topic up with her before they open up the coffers.

Now the confusion. If the benefits are being cut due to funding; how in the world can DSS pay more to her if she stops working when their funds are limited and they will be making further cuts?
