i agree, it’s terrible. i’ve heard the ex tell her friends, “you need to move to MI, i’m getting food stamps, cash, health insurance, home heating assistance, they helped me buy a car... and i’m STILL nailing [me] on child support”
have you heard anything about the lifetime 4 year cap the legislature has been talking about? that’d be a great start to weaning off te deadbeats.
Never heard of the 4 year cap before, but, they sure as heck need to do something. Michigan is WAY to generous. I would be generous for those that are truly disabled, elderly, mentally handicapped. But, if your able bodied, I would make it so it hurt so much, they’d want to get off welfare. Way to many dead beats. I see them in our little town. Same guys, having multiple illegitimate kids. Young able bodied but, hey, why work. The government supports the kids, supports the dead beat dads. All they have to do is go out and look for 2 jobs a week. My friend who owns a video store said one came in one day and asked if she had any openings. She said no, but, burger king does. He said, I don’t want to work at BK. I’m truly sick of this.
