I have a friend who has two children and is on government assistance (medical, food stamps, etc..) She is married and her husband makes about 15 dollars an hour. She is always talking about how poor they are. They continually get hand outs from local business and churches for christmas presents and school clothes etc. She is a good mother and her children are good kids. The other day she told me that her and her husband are planning on having another baby and she asked what I think. I told her that I thought it was a very selfish and stupid decision. She was appalled at what I said and she will not talk to me. I have sent her e-mails trying to explain that it is not fair to people like my husband and I who do not make that much money, but we have enough to pay our bills provide everything for our son and have a little left over to do fun things with. Her and people like her are literally taking money from me and my family because they can't pay for their kids themselves. I for one am tired of barely sliding by because I have to pay for all of these parents who can't pay for their children and continue to have more. Opinions please.
