This really happens under Title IV Funding. Any child who is taken by cps earns the foster care provider tax free money. Plus food stamps, plus free medical and dental and other perks. For those of you who don’t believe that being in Foster Care is criminal have not done your home work. Children are stolen every day for profit and once they are in the system the parent no matter how hard they try can not get their child back. That statistics prove it.
I was speaking to an emergency room physician this morning. He told me that
a woman in her 20s 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. It works like this: The grandma calls the Department of Child 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
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” for the family.
– Now you know why we are broke.
