I grew up in a one parent household after my dad left when I was 12. I worked full time and gave my earnings to mom to help put food on the table and pay bills. I have not once collected public assistance monies because I decided I was going to have a better life and enlisted when I was 17. Up until the time I married, most of my income went to mom still to help out with my younger siblings.

Most of the people on public assistance are there of their own free choosing and laziness, not because they grew up destitute.
