Reader Bill C. received this email forward and wants to know if this email about families getting money from the state to raise the babies of their relatives is true. Yes, unfortunately it is. The relatives of mothers unable to care for their babies can receive extensive payments from the state. It’s called welfare, and it helps keep the poverty rate from doubling.
We can’t confirm that people are having multiple babies just to hand them off to relatives for the free cash, but the way things are going with the economy this might not be such a bad idea. Having lots of babies is a proven money maker. If it worked for the Octomom Nadia Sulieman and for Jon and Kate Plus 8, maybe it will work for you.
Bread Winner…Making Babies!
I was speaking to an emergency room physician this morning. He told me that a woman in her 20s came to the ER with her 8th pregnancy. She stated, “my momma told me that I am the breadwinner for the family.” He asked her to explain. She said that she can make babies and babies get money for the family. The scam goes like this: The grandma calls the Department of Child and Family Services and states that the unemployed daughter is not capable of caring for these children. DCFS agrees and states that the child or children will need to go to foster care.
The grandma then volunteers to be the foster parent, and thus receives a check for $1500 per child per month in Illinois . Total yearly income: $144,000 tax-free, not to mention free health care (Medicaid) plus a monthly card entitling her to free groceries, etc, and a voucher for 250 free cell phone minutes per month. This does not even include WIC and other welfare programs. Indeed, grandma was correct in that her fertile daughter is the “breadwinner” for the family.
This is how the ruling class spends our tax dollars.
AAARRRGGGH …..and in ILLINOIS !! – Now you know why we are broke.
