Subject: I agree that.....

I agree that a job is better then anything else that could be given to the poor! A job that pays enough to pay the bills. It pretty sad when a husband and wife both work long hrs only to still be able to get food stamps because their wages are so low.


The world is NUTS!

What about when department of child protection takes children away from their parents because they dont have the money to give them a decent place to live...then pays a foster family around $400 a month per child! If the family had say....4 children that would be $1600 the state pays out for someone else to care for the children! You know the family could have been able to have a really nice home for less then half that!
Now I know their are some children who really need to be in a foster home and they are not the ones I am talking about.
But it just seems to me that if we are going to tax people then the money should be used wisely. Instead of taking peoples children away and paying out thousands of $$$$ for others to care for them how about helping the family get back on its feet? Then they will be able to do for them selfs. It would be a more of a short term thing and we would leave families intact!

I HATE having to work the hrs my husband and I do and still have to have food stamps!
Hopefully this class I am taking will help me get a higher paying job...though there isnt much money in caring for children. We pay our garbage picker uppers more then we pay people who take care of children! Kindof gives you an idea what were our priorities are dosnt it!



Blessings and Hugs
