Back on Welfare

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

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.

Fact: overpopulation is an increasing worldwide environmental and living standard problem. Octomom and welfare moms are at the forefront of this problem

OCTO moron, is she thinks Amercia owes her a paycheck she needs to think again. We owe her nothing and with all that plastic surgery she should have done something with that face, boobs or not, ugly is still ugly. And she had money for drugs but now can't support her family. It's not our job to support her and she needs to get a job like the rest of America does..what a low life...

This is not news. This is a single mother with 8. Get it people 8 children. As of now the state has chosen not to take the children away. There is NO WAY. A snge person can feed, cloth AND shelter children without assistance. It is impossible unless she has the bank o Angelina Jolie and we know that "ain't" the case. The welfare is for the children. Should she leave them for 8 -10 hours alone whie she gets to work? Is she does the state will say she is unfit? She can't just hire anyone to take care of the children. From what I hear, several have speciall needs and are more than a handful. Am I making excuses for her? Heck NO! But I am realistic and I realize these children deserve humane treatment inspire of there mothers foolishness.. Who's to say they'd be better off split into 8 differen homes. We all hear the horror stories of foster care. So instead of criticizing TMZ WHY DON'T YOU OFFER BABYSITTING SERVICES. YOU MAKE BIG BUCKS. PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS ? We know Nadia was terribly foolish. - what about you??

You can't be on your feet alone with fourteen kids. It would be amazing if she accomplished that without resorting to porn. This is not bankrupting the country. People need to just let this go and be glad the family has some support.

It doesn't matter how or why the kids are here, what matters is that they need help. People are not livestock that you only maintain if they pay out. The lack of compassion shown to the poor is terrifying. Wait till it is you in trouble and all you get is hate and ridicule for the little bit of help you do get. It is not fun to be on assistance for the most part. People tend to feel ashamed as it is. This is wrong to make them feel that way. The Bible says despise not the poor for they will always be with you. They are there as a test to show your comapssion I think.

The children are victims of her stupidity. Wait till they start to really understand what's going on. Shame.

Those saying "leave her alone" should crawl up her polluted womb and go cry there.

They should have pulled these kids away from her when they were born. It was obvious then that she was never going to be able to provide for them. As predicted, now we're stuck footing the bill, and those kids are growing up in this screwed up mess.

If California had any sense, the courts would follow Kansas's lead and make the sperm donor pay child support. She's unfit and these children have father(s) out there. Why should tax payers foot the bill? Let their father(s) pay for them or take custody of them.

...and who is surprised by this news? No one. Everyone knows the only reason she had all those kids is because she thought she was going to get rich with her own reality show. She's worse than a puppy mill.

It's a shame you can't punish her for being irresponsible with out hurting the children!!!! I think the doctor that artifically inseminated her should be responsible for some of these bills. Since it wasn't the first time he inseminated her like a dog!!! He should have had her mentally evaluated before he did it the first time!!! She had no means of support how did she pay for insemination the first time???? So SAD!!!
