The often bemoaned enemy in our midst is The Welfare Mom. That horrid beast who eats less than 3% of the state budget to feed and keep her child(ren) and self alive while often working but underemployed. Seriously, how dare she accept money?
But, pardon me, where is Dad?
I am always telling you to think of Cash Aid through Welfare programs as an advance or replacement of child support and California tries to recoup that money (discriminatory if you consider that men who live with the poor families are never billed. Seriously, bill everyone or no one…but that’s a different rant).
It took two adults to place the family in that position. Where is Dad?
Why aren’t we vilifying fathers when we scorn the mothers?
Oh, and why are we scorning them?
