    I know a couple people that live as you describe. They scam the system in every way possible, get food assistance and rent assistance and free tuition, all the while voting Republican. I know a person that faked a back injury to get out of work for months, so their income would qualify for medicaid, because their spouse needed very expensive medical treatment. This person is a die-hard GOPer, and the spouse that received the expensive medical care via Medicaid is a dedicated Limbaugh listener and despises Obama.
    It's all part of the delusional, narcissistic society we live in. When someone else gets assistance, they're lazy freeloaders. When you get assistance, well, you deserve it because you work hard and pay your taxes and you're not a brown person.
    The worst thing about America is Americans.
