Octomom or OctoNUTS?

In Uncategorized on 2012/04/26 at 08:47

Octomom pays $500+ for a haircut while getting food stamps and refusing to pay $150 to have a toilet in her home repaired.

Her Bizarre Actions Make Headlines & Potentially Hurt Millions Including her 14 Kids.

The woman is obviously in need of mental health care and the social workers who investigated her probably need to rethink their position.

There are plenty of people who have lost their jobs or who cannot find jobs who need food stamps and heathcare that they cannot receive — yet OctoMom is allowed to receive money for photo-spreads and phone sex while more and more reports show she isn’t taking care of her children.

Republican extreme conservatives are bound to use this as yet another example of how the food stamp program is abused.

Let’s get the facts straight that there are plenty of people who are on very fixed incomes who don’t even qualify for food stamps or subsidized basic health care.

Underemployed families who used to have better paying jobs are paying off upside-down mortgages, paying for thier kids food with whatever they got and trying to make it to the end of the recession — they don’t qualify for food stamps.

This woman is doing harm to her kids and to other well deserving families who may find themselves in need of temporary help during a period of unemployment or disability.

The social workers should revisit this case and get this woman off the dole while providing a safer haven for her kids.
