Clinton's niece living on food stamps
The Washington Examiner ^ | Nikki Schwab

Posted on 07/15/2010 11:49:16 AM PDT by nascarnation

While Chelsea Clinton has been spotted flashing her bling (her engagement ring, of course), it seems that her cousin Macy is struggling to make ends meet.

Former President Clinton's niece, Macy Clinton, said she is in such a rut, she uses a government benefit card to get food from her local grocery store. She blames her financial trouble on former President Clinton's brother, Roger, who she says abandoned her.

"It's hard, because I'm a Clinton, too, but I have to be on food stamps, and I have to sacrifice everything just to make it day by day," Macy Clinton told "Inside Edition" in an interview that aired Tuesday.

She could pool her foodstamps with Obama’s auntie.

Ahhh, I'm staying away from this one. The poor girl had Roger for a father, so that's bad enough.

Who knows what demons she's got living in her brain.

I do not support government welfare.

I do not know if she is a hard worker or a drunkard.

I do know this:

1 Timothy 5: 8

If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

Clinton’s have millions. Even a $500 a month stipend would be enough to cover their duty of charity.

“Worse than an unbeliever....” Unbelievers go to hell... I do not want to KNOW what could be “WORSE” than that.

This is so typical of the Democrats ~ they think it's OK for me to pay their kids' way.

Never trust a Democrat near a cashregister or your kids.

Yeah, she should get together with Obama’s brother George. He lives in a hut, and she says she’s in a rut.

From the article:

“Clinton has an estranged relationship with her father, whom she has met only twice.”

So? If the Dems have it their way, we will all be living on food stamps soon.
As long as there is even one person NOT living on gov't dole, the redistribution of wealth is not complete.

Those Clinton’s are really “stand-up” guys, aren’t they?

We always wondered how many Billy Jrs were out there but figured the trail of dead bodies attached to the Clintons were enough to scare off any paternity claims.

Who was it, the horse-faced actress I believe, who whined about Republican control of Congress because she had family who depended on government assistance. She was really worried about them. REALLY worried. Just not enough to feed them herself.

Krap! Get a job! Or better yet write a book about the Clinton Clan. Or threaten to write one - if you can actually write. Bubba will pay you off or knock you off either way your problems are solved!

"I wonder why presidents often have brothers who are trash.'

I can only think of two in my lifetime - Roger and Billy Carter. The rest of them at least had jobs, although I think Nixon had a brother who was a bit dodgy - some serious financial problems, and the like.

Of course, Ted Kennedy's record speaks for itself.

For some strange reason, very strange reason, what ever happened to Amy Carter? Is she sitting in a jail cell for protesting some cause no one cares about? Did she ever find a husband? A significant other? Did her dad build her a house?

How do we know this girl has not taken her father and uncle for thousands already, only to spend it on drugs? I bet there are a lot of freepers who now refuse to help their family members, because the only time they come around is when they want money to spend on alcohol or drugs.

Amy’s married and has one kid.

Her vocation is working for one of Dad’s deals, the “Carter Center”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carter_Center

It’s the kind of thing that otherwise unemployable rich people do.

She blames Roger for abandoning her?!? Sorry, but you have to actually be in someone’s life before you can abandon them. She was 6 when DNA tests proved he was her father and they have only met twice. Fine, Roger didn’t make his child support payments but mama knew that was going to be the case 18 years ago. Seems to me that if there is blame for the current food stamp situation, it falls squarely on Macy and her mama, not Roger.

Maybe Macy can get a few pointers from Levi. Better yet, maybe those two should milk their 15 minutes together.

Or it may be the other way around. Wouldn't you take to drinking if you had to put up with such egotistical brothers?

The Enquirer (who’s been pretty reliable lately) says Roger’s been a deadbeat Dad and not paid child support to the tune of 30 grand or so, and that the girl is a cosmetology student.

Hard to say if your theory is correct or not.

OK, what’s the cutoff income for food stamps? Have the dems succeeded in making the middle class eligable for those like they did with school lunches?

Maybe she should move to Africa and marry Zer0’s half brother. He’s more likely to get help from the US that way.

Sniff, sniff, "and Chelsea gets everything! Life is just too unfair! Why can't I get in on some of Uncle Bill's and Aunt Hillary's money? I mean, I AM a Clinton, too!!"

Sorry lady but just becaue you share a name (that BTW you decided to take your father did not give it to you because you were not born legitamate) does not entitle you to anything. Get off of your duff and get busy if you want off of the dole.
