Sad but true.. I am an AMERICAN BORN CITIZEN, and a LAW OBIDING TAX PAYER as well as a single mother (I live with my fiance and father of my child) and I got denied foodstamps because I make "To much money" HA!! I didnt know making 9.50/hr was to much money when you consider my rent 700, daycare 500, car insur 140, lights almost 200, gas close to 100 a month, student loans 100 a month... by the end of the month I am flat broke and have to have my mother help me. My fiance was laid off almost a year ago and has had a hard time finding work, he was going to work with his dad who is a crabber but then that # happened in the gulf! Ive pawned almost all of my jewlery throught the last two years to buy food, but they want to say I make to much money and that I dont qualify for medicaid? I dont understand the system here I am just trying to work and provide a decent life for my child and just because Im not DIRT F**KIN POOR they wont help me... Im so PISSED off at the system..Im being responsible by paying down my debts unlike the rest of america Im doing what little I can to help but they wont help me?! It makes me want to give them the bird! But I would like to own my own home oneday so not paying my bills would be self sabotaging..... Its not fair .... I dont know maybe if I put down hispanic they might cut me a break I do have cuban in my blood LOL
