"Growing up, my mother was a recipient who abused the welfare system. I remember having no heat or electricity and being so hungry it was painful. My siblings and I would fist fight over food. She would trade her food stamp card for various things like cash, cigarettes and an occasional joint. She just wouldn't help herself, and we were the kids that no one (DHS) cared about anyway and taxpaying working class people were forced to support her nasty habits. You can't help someone that won't help themselves"
