Also for some welfare is easier and remember that our kids learn from seeing what adults do. I am 1 of 8 children I was removed from my mom at 5 months old and put up for adoption she didn't want to work so she had another baby and kept having them. She raised all but me and they are all on welfare except me. I was raised by a single mom who never recieved welfare, never ask for child support for my 2 siblings and put her self through college to get her Masters degree she was an inspiration to me when I was struggling through college with 3 kids and living with my ex if I got discouraged I just thought I could do it if she could as a single mom of 3 I often wonder how I would have turned out if raised by my bio mom.

DP will be paying quite a bit in tax this year too Beryl... but just because we've got a bit now, doesn't mean it'll always be the case, and it certainly wasn't the case for us at first.
Sometimes people rely on welfare for a while while they're working towards something bigger. They don't deserve to be punished for aiming high. Sometimes it's aim high, work hair and rely on welfare to get your through for a bit... or settle for a dead-end job that earns just enough that you're not on welfare for eternity. I think encouraging the former is more productive than encouraging the latter...
how much tax does everyone pay and how much is housing?
what you actually pay is so tiny...plus even if you work, you still cost the country...
Your tax might be what covers you if your spouse/partner dies..
or you become paralysed..
will that make you a freeloader?
what if your partner leaves you...
what is your plan..as anyone can end up a single parent its not a select group.
You could earn loads and have a lovely house and touch no drugs and one day it could be all gone...
I have a friend whose husband was on about 350k a year.
He lost his banking job.
they are living in a rental property and trying desperately to get another job. Its been 2 years.
Their savings are almost gone and she is earning $40k.
BIG BIG FALL.
I'd just ignore and delete. Life it too short to waste time with people who, despite life experience, privilege and access to more information then they could ever need will insist on seeing the world in black and white.
