Octomom

Back on Welfare

1/6/2013 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0104-nadya-suleman-octomom-tmzIt's only been five months since Octomom got off welfare, but TMZ has learned the honeymoon's over for your tax dollars -- because she's back on government assistance.

Sources close to Octo tell TMZ, Nadya Suleman signed up for welfare again this week after her October rehab bills devoured most of her savings.

We're told the mother of 14 will be getting $1,800 a month for food, $1,000 for emergency cash, as well as Medi-Cal benefits to help with mental heath and dental issues.

According to sources, Octomom only plans to use the welfare money while she gets back on her feet -- or on her back.

TMZ broke the story ... Octo went on welfare last March, but was able to get off guv assistance in July ... the result of a pile of cash she scored from stripping and masturbation porn.

A vivid deal, a few nights a week on the pole, a website, and some social networking will fix all of that. Hell vivid should find a lot of talent on government assistance.

Even if her rehab were free, she still would have bills for the nannies, etc while she was gone. I really have no issue with feeding children. It's not their faults that they were born. No reason for them to starve to death in this land of plenty.

She would be doing those kids a favour by putting them up for adoption, when they were first born. No singular human being can afford to take proper care of 13 kids.

You know the person that should be held responsible is the Dr. That enabled her to have that many children at once. He violated ethics and morality to get his two minutes of fame. Now he should have to help support them.

She is making around $40,000 in $$$ and benefits a year for doing nothing other than breeding a bunch of kids. And she is the norm. The average person on welfare gets about $30,000 a year in benefits between food stamp, section 8, medi-cal, cell phone, cash aid....and I am sure there are more benefits that I have no idea the taxpayer give people. And the liberals here in California and around the country just voted to raise our taxes more so that more people can get something for nothing. People who vote Democrat should have their taxes raised and those of us who vote Republican should have ours stay the same. If they want save people from themselves...they can do it with their money and not mine!

People need to realize that Octo has not been off welfare. She's been collecting the money all along. This is just a recertification so she can continue on it.

Now let's look at how much she's making: $1800 for food stamps; $1000 extra cash; $850 per child for three "disabled" children. That makes $5350 per month! Plus she has no rent payment to deal with right now. I know I could live very nicely with $5350 per month.

Next, let's look at a welfare mom who has a publicity agent; and her own corporation. Plus any residual money (royalties) she gets from selling pictures, stories, interviews, etc.

And, you people who say give her a break, are telling me I should be sorry for her?

Puleeze!

A couple things that are wrong.
MediCal has no dental coverage at all.. Not for adults or kids..
MediCal is also going bankrupt.
Also, good luck getting a therapist for Mental Health issues, with what they pay no one takes it.
