HOW MUCH WELFARE CAN SOMEONE GET? THIS IS B S!!!


FREE HELP CAN PEOPLE RECEIVE FROM THE GOVERNMENT? TONIGHT… AN EYE-OPENING REPORT. CHRIS PAPST EXPOSES JUST HOW MANY OF YOUR LOCAL, STATE AND FEDERAL TAX DOLLARS ARE AVAILABLE FOR PEOPLE ON LOW- INCOME OR PUBLIC ASSISTANCE. KRISTINA COGAN: SINGLE MOM RECEIVING BENEFITS “YOU DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO AS A SINGLE MOM. AND THAT’S WHAT I DID.” FOR KRISTINA COGAN, A SINGLE MOM OF TWO, LIFE HAS BEEN A CHALLENGE. SO FIVE YEARS AGO, SHE APPLIED FOR WELFARE. ONE DAY, SHE HOPES TO FREE HERSELF FROM IT. KRISTINA COGAN: SINGLE MOM RECEIVING BENEFITS “IF YOU’RE GOING TO GET SOMETHING FOR FREE, ARE YOU GOING TO WORK FOR IT? IT KIND OF LIKE SUCKS YOU IN. THEY FEEL LIKE THEY ARE HOPELESS. THEY FEEL LIKE THEY HAVE NO ALTERNATIVE. THE WELFARE SYSTEM SUCKS YOU IN? YES. AND IT’S HARD TO GET OUT OF IT? YES.” AND IT’S NOT HARD TO SEE WHY. FOR THIS STORY, CBS-21 ELIMINATE CBS 21 AND ADD “WE” WE RESEARCHED WHAT GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS ARE AVAILABLE TO A SINGLE MOTHER OF TWO MAKING $19,000 A YEAR. AND WHAT WE FOUND WAS INCREDIBLE.

THE MOTHER IS ELIGIBLE FOR $5,500 IN PELL GRANTS FOR SCHOOL WITH AN ADDITIONAL $12,000 FOR THE EDUCATION OPPORTUNITY GRANT; SMART GRANT; AND TEACH GRANT. OUR FAMILY WOULD ALSO GET $6,800 IN TAX CREDITS, AND $1,900 IN WITHHOLDING WOULD BE RETURNED.ADD IT UP AND THIS FAMILY CAN GET $81,589 IN FREE ASSISTANCE. GARY ALEXANDER: FORMER SECRETARY: DEPT OF PUBLIC WELFARE “FINANCIALLY WE ARE HEADING FOR A CLIFF. AND WE CAN’T AFFORD IT BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TAXPAYERS.” GARY ALEXANDER IS THE FORMER SECRETARY OF THE PENNSYLVANIA DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. HE SAYS IT’S MATH, THE CURRENT BENEFITS SYSTEM CANNOT LAST. GARY ALEXANDER: SECRETARY: DEPT OF PUBLIC WELFARE “IF WE ARE NOT CAREFUL, THE SYSTEM WILL CRASH. AND IF IT DOES CRASH, MAYBE WE WILL FINALLY WAKE UP.” WE NEED TO ADD A SIG OUT HERE THE LOCAL AND STATE BENEFITS VARY ACROSS THE COUNTRY. IN ADDITION TO FEDERAL BENEFITS. THE MOTHER YOU MET .. LIVES IN PENNSYLVANIA. WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK.

  1. with all the money someone gets there is no reason why they can't get a degree in something useful or learn a trade, find a career and start working. A couple years later they could come off. The daycare assistance program is GREAT and leaves no excuse.

  2. This is insane. I work my ass off and don't make anywhere near that. We have to end the entitlements and go back to private charity. It would be a hell of a lot easier to tell who was really in need. I don't mind charity. Welfare is another story.

  3. This just piss me off I worked all my life I started when I was just 10 years old and I took that money to help buy school clothes we ate from growing our own food we didn't have much but we were happy and we didn't live off of the government what is wrong with people today take them off of welfare and food stamps and then maybe just maybe they will quit having babies and go to work

  4. Wtf… You need daycare if you sit on your ass all day eating bon bons……. Watch your own kids….. I didn't bust the nut and have them… I don't want to take care of them

  5. welfare should be treated like that unemployment you get six months you have to provide proof you are looking for a job. unless you're truly disabled and not some fat ass with too many food stamps a true physical disability.

  6. Wow. A family in my area has 4 or more kids and they are on Welfare and just bought a brand new RV. I will tell you this. When the kids move out, if they ever do, you will be woken up and will be working until you die when you didn't save anything for retirement!

  7. It's not a matter of IF, it's a matter of WHEN. Looks like it's catching up really quick now. Prepare yourselves for the ensuing riots and looting that will follow when it DOES crash. Living out in the country will not save you, either. People that have money: get your heads out of your asses and bring jobs back from China, Pakistan, Mexico, Bangladesh, Indonesia, etc and put that shit back into the U.S. economy. If you fail to do this VERY, VERY soon, looters will soon show up at your gated villas; stealing you blind. Your security/help will likely look the other way when they come, too.

  8. ANYBODY stealing my money should hang like the criminals they are. Starting with Government officials who use my money to buy votes.

  9. I had no idea that these people were entitled to all these programs.  No wonder this country is in debt.  How much longer will we extend these benefits to these people.  There ought to be a time limit or something.

  10. I'm a single 22 year old male whom works 38 hours a week at a gas station. I make around $12,000 a year. Somethings not right here.

  11. I work a full-time job and I currently looking for a second job to survive a couple of people live next door to me it's on welfare in some of them is on SSI and they are fake people

  12. this is like advertising to other bums who'll watch this and think ''i'm on welfare in the wrong place. i should move here.''

  13. I lived next door to a woman with three kids but in the late 90’s and while I got up at 5am to go to work 5-6 days a week that lady drove a nicer car than I had and I had a really nice 88 Buick and she had a 91 Oldsmobile her house had been built by habitat for humanity (I think) and I looked to see if I could afford it and they turned me down because I was making to much money but later found out it was being given away to welfare families (kinda like a lottery thing) they built a garage for it and it had everything…central air and all I had 3 window air conditioners for me and my wife one in the girls room and one for the front room…but my wife went over one day to welcome them to the neighborhood and that woman was a open book telling her everything even though she didn’t ask… I’m not really complaining that much but it would seem to me anything that was given to you for free you’d take care of…within 2 months of them moving in they had already broke 3 windows a big hole in the front room wall flooded the basement and her kids ran around all hours of the night and they were all under 12…the thing she did is when they sent her a letter saying they were gonna inspect her place then and only then would she clean it top to bottom…what I’m getting at is where was her and her kids pride of their home or where did their mortality go because having 3 kids by three different dudes told me she didn’t have any but when someone gives you something free of charge you should do your best to keep it nice or at least put a effort into it….

  14. 80% of these welfare recipients are illegal aliens and their children anchor babies now do you see why they come here.

  15. Start with the illegal aliens and $100 million sent to Mexico for Mexicans & Central Americans for foreign aid

  16. I HAVE BUSINESSES… MY 3 BUSINESSES WILL NOT GO TO THESE MODERN DAY JEZIBELS WHO ARE THE CONCUBINES OF THE SOCIALIST DEMO-CRAPPY DEMAGOGUE PART OF THE STATES… I VE BOYCOTTED THESE JEZIBELIOUS WOMEN FULL OF TOXIC JEZIBILITY…

  17. She answered the question, first line, if someone's gonna give you something for free, are you gonna work for it, good opening line, right

  18. Those numbers are Bullshit. Everyone isnt on every program and the numbers are inflated. The entire Safety Net is 9 percent of the Federal Budget. And there is no talk about means testing.
