Verified by - Babies Equal Income; Misuse of Welfare Checks

The Truth: according to
Dr. Sebastian J. Ciancio, of Danville, Illinois, told TruthOrFiction.Com that he is the author of  this commentary about a conversation that he had with an emergency room physician.  He emailed his commentary to syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh and a few friends. Soon afterwards his commentary went viral on the World Wide Web.
Dr. Ciancio also told us that several unauthorized versions of his email have been circulating the Internet that have included photos and might have been modified by others.

Here is the Dr. Ciancio's letter:

Dear Mr. Limbaugh,

I was speaking to an emergency room physician this morning. He told me that a woman in her 20's came to the ER with her 8th pregnancy. She stated "my momma told me that I am the breadwinner for the family." He asked her to explain. She said that she can make babies and babies get money for the family. The scam goes like this: The grandma calls the Department of Children and Family Services and states that the unemployed daughter is not capable of caring for these children. DCFS agrees and states that the child or children will need to go to foster care. The grandma then volunteers to be the foster parent, and thus receives a check for $1500 per child per month in Illinois. Total yearly income: $144,000 tax-free, not to mention free healthcare (Medicaid) plus a monthly "Link" card entitling her to free groceries, etc, and a voucher for 250 free cell phone minutes per month. This does not even include WIC and other welfare programs. Indeed, grandma was correct in that her fertile daughter is the "breadwinner" in the family.

I hope you share this story with your listeners so that they know how the ruling class spends their tax dollars.

Also, many thanks for the fine service you provide in educating people about the merits of conservative thinking.

Free Republic writes: Bay State welfare recipients can play the slots, pick up a six-pack of beer or nab a flat-screen plasma TV under loosey-goosey Bay State restrictions that allow those on the dole to treat taxpayers’ wallets as their own personal ATM.
Recipients of the Department of Transitional Assistance programs get Electronic Benefits Transfer cards that work like regular debit cards, allowing them to withdraw cash from ATMs and use it for whatever they want - all with scant oversight by the state.
State officials were unable to say how many liquor stores and bars accept the EBT cards. Nor could they say for certain that welfare cash isn’t being used on Lottery tickets or even casinos.
The Bangor Daily writes: In the wake of turmoil in California where lawmakers found welfare recipients were using their state issued debit cards to withdraw cash from ATMs at casinos and massage parlors, two key state lawmakers say Maine faces the same accountability issues.
Here's my question:  how could anyone argue against the need for changes in our Welfare laws?  This method of ours just creates more Americans with an entitlement mentality, more people pushed into lifetime welfare instead of a ride out of poverty.  Why are they not at least having to do some menial labor in order to get their money - and this includes those who will possibly be receiving Unemployment Compensation for up to three years if President Obama's ideas are passed into law....

  1. I agree wholeheartedly with your assessment -- and I am unemployed! At least those on unemployment or welfare could provide several (mandatory) hours of volunteer service to the health care or other service industry...and perhaps pick up some new skills that would make them more attractive to those hiring!
