A women called into a KLBJ News Radio show to spike the football and celebrate the fact that she is on welfare living it up while most folks are out there working hard all day.
She called in to brag about how she gets to sit home all day and she gets to “visit my friends all day” as well as “smoke weed” instead of working for a paycheck. The women claimed to be getting about $450 altogether in food stamps.
See the video here:
The women told the radio host, “Can you really blame us?? The caller, Lucy, goes on to claim that while her husband works part-time, he doesn’t really work that much because “he doesn’t see the need for it.”
Lucy went on to say that people like her and “illegal immigrants” she knows who don’t “contribute to society” still get paid and our checks are going to come on time. She even makes the claim that government is delivering presents for her kids on Christmas. I was not actually aware of that particular perk that welfare offers.
The women goes on to ask an incredibly valid question, “Why should I work?” She also says, “We’re the one’s getting paid, can you really blame us?”
She also brags about having an Obama phone and only having to pay about $50 per month on rent.
We covered this story in December but as we move further in to the new year and move in to the impending budget battles, it is important to keep in mind how much waste is being shoveled into entitlement spending.
