I am curious what you consider to be welfare. To me it is ANY free program, such as foodstamps, WIC, or just getting a check....for that matter the EIC on taxes is s form of to me too.
People are quick to judge and turn their nose at those that get 'that check', yet they receive some form too. So what do you see as welfare?
I will say that I am medically retired, I retired from a police department due to mental illness, I do not get SSI, though I do qualify(I feel there are those that need it more), but I get a retirement check from the department. When single I did continue to work in small jobs, such as Walmart to supplement my income, I had to watch what type of work I did as to not aggravate my illness. Now that I am married and have children, I am a SAHM.
