I have seen this personally. A receiver of a "generous" stipend that takes said money and uses it for purposes other than what it is intended for.
In my viewing pleasure, I have seen this person get money for her children to eat upon and rent paid for her, as well as 2/3 of the total of all
bills, all paid for by my taxes on behalf of my *grumble* government. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, this person has a $35,000 SUV, kids have 2 xboxes,
2 Wii's, 4 Nintendo DS's, 2 recently bought top-of-the-line laptops, amongst other various and numerous unnecessary things. And she BRAGS about
Now, as I sit here and write this, I own a car worth less than $1,500, have to pay for my own college courses (including books, fees, etc), clothes
are shoddy and worn because my children get their clothes before me (no question), am working off a computer I had to build with various parts because
I can't afford to just go buy the latest and greatest PC, and have to work double-shifts just to make sure my family has more than just ramen, eggs,

I truly, sincerely, and heartfelt pray that the Honorable Judge Judy Sheindlin really does send that tape to Congress. But better yet, send it to all
levels of government nationwide. Show the states, counties, cities, and townships just where our taxes go to and how they are being used. The system
that reviews these cases should work 200% harder to justify the cause and yet still, keep track of all cases to see how they are developing. This
welfare system needs a complete overhaul.
I'm saddened and appalled that this exists, but overjoyed that it ended up on national TV.
