There are constant reports about people committing welfare fraud. It’s entirely too easy to receive the benefits, and some people are working the system so that they can live their best life – at the expense of millions of hard-working American taxpayers.
What’s worse is that there are some people who not only commit welfare fraud but brag about it online to anyone who will listen.
A woman in California made an online video to talk about how well she’s done for herself by taking advantage of the welfare system, as well as all of the “perks” that she gets. She explains how, with EBT, she is able to get food, go to fast-food restaurants, and more. She’s also able to get free daycare.
The welfare system has been broken for quite some time. Democrats are the ones responsible for keeping citizens, like this California woman, working the system. She’s fully able to work – she just doesn’t want to.
Democrats are allowing the system to stay broken because they know that they’ll get the vote. People who enjoy the benefits of a broken system will keep voting Democrat so they don’t have to get up and get a job.
The worst is how brazen this California woman is when she’s talking about how she uses all of the money. She explains that one of the benefits that she gets is daycare money from the state. She gets money for each child so that they can go to daycare. She then uses a friend for daycare and splits the money with them.
She has spent more time trying to figure out how to get money out of the government than trying to get a job. After all, what kind of incentive is there for her to work when she is getting as much money as she is from the state? She goes on to ask people, “Who would want to work in America?”
The problem isn’t anything new, either. Unfortunately, there has been significant abuse of the welfare system for decades. A number of politicians have added it to their platform in order to address – but they can’t seem to get it passed by both the House and the Senate.
Often, the problem comes from welfare breeding welfare. There are entire generations of people being on welfare because they are being raised to believe that it is okay to live on welfare as opposed to going out and getting a job.
At one point during the video, the woman says that it is her “God-given right” to burden the taxpayers. Either she has a considerably high opinion of her self or she was raised to think this way. At no point does she show any remorse for taking advantage of the system. She feels entitled to the money because it’s what taxpayers are paying for. She isn’t a taxpayer, so she doesn’t care if she is taking the money from hard-working people.
The woman also explains that California is the best place to get all of the money – and with California having such a large population of Democrats, it’s not surprising. However, with this video out there, politicians from California really need to re-think what they are creating when they are allowing the welfare system to remain as broken as it currently is. This woman talks about having children simply for the sake of being able to get more money out of the state – and this is yet another issue that politicians have been talking about for years. People who are on welfare are continuing to dig themselves into deeper financial holes by adding more mouths to feed.
Being on welfare often entitles a person to WIC as soon as they have kids. This provides even more money for such things as formula, milk, juice, cheese, and other items. There are plenty of videos out there of other bold thieves who talk about getting so many WIC checks that they end up buying more products and then selling them in order to get more money. Often, people breast-feed but still use WIC to get formula – giving them an extra source of revenue.
In Los Angeles, the welfare system uses EBT to provide funds on a card. In addition to the food, they provide GR (General Relief). The woman breaks it down to what she gets, per person, as GR in the amount of $221 and $179 for each person for food. This adds up to $400 a person (the adult and, then, each child) plus free daycare. The EBT card works at fast-food restaurants, too, making it easy for people to enjoy an easy life. Combine that with the Section 8 free housing and it’s easy to see why Welfare is absolutely broken.
