Nadya Suleman, the mother who became famous when she gave birth to octuplets in 2009, is back on welfare. Suleman’s rep, Gina Rodriguez, told ABCNews.com that Suleman, the mother of 14, has once again sought out “state assistance for a brief period of time.” “She spent most of her savings while she was in Chapman Treatment center, paying for around-the-clock nannies, drivers, security and her treatment program,” Rodriguez said in an email. “She does not expect to be on longer than three months.”
I guess it´s easy to say this woman brought her problems on herself and she deserves to suffer the consequences.Even if you believe this,there´s no reason to be inhumane about it.Look at the billions in wasted pity money that we throw at other sympathetic losers in this country. I just find it hard to believe that some deep pocketed Hollywood type hasn´t stepped up to bankroll this woman for the kid´s sake.I would if I had the money.
She could have made a lot of money in the stripping business but backed out,I think she deserves credit for that.
On the other hand you have the glorification of a rapper thug having 11 kids by 10 different women and today´s sicko society finds that acceptable.
I feel sorry for her. She never planned to have this many children. Her dr encouraged her to let him implant the ´rest´ of the embryos assuring her most wouldn´t survive. Well guess what! I think he should be paying child support but as for Suleman, she deserves help as much as anyone else on welfare. I´m sure her home is chaotic but every picture or tape I´ve seen, it´s clean, as are the kids. Yeah they wrote on walls - don´t they all.
Regardless of the how or why, she is simply a pickpocket. Let those who sympathize pay the freight. Those who don´t sympathize should not be tapped simply because those who feel sorry for her think it´s the right thing to do. They might just be wrong.
Personally, I think "helping" these people actually hurts them and breeds more of them. I really do believe that but I don´t try to stop the do-gooders who feel otherwise.
Why, then, do they feel they have the right to force me to do what they think is "right" when I don´t force them to do what I think is right?
Strip it all down (pardon the pun), and you get a bunch of little kids who are caught in the middle. I don´t care about the problems this gal is having- her "anxiety" attacks etc. Nor the Dr. and his alleged culpability. I always have to wonder about the kids. I have no doubt they love their mom, they need her, they need secure home, and a happy place to know they are loved. I would rather see her and her kids get welfare rather than some Somali leeches using it to scam drugs and set up prostitution rings here.
I had rather her have it than "Obamaphone" woman!! Please refrain from calling the children names, each one has their own guardian angel in heaven and deserve food, love, and respect. They did NOTHING WRONG. Their mom is the loser, but the doctor is the culprit in this story.
Jen Arnold, star of the hit TLC series The Little Couple, is battling a rare form of cancer. The Houston-based neonatologist, 39, and her husband Bill Klein, 38, are parents to son Will, 3, whom they adopted from China, and daughter Zoey, 2, whom they recently brought home from India. But what should have been a time of joy and celebration for the reality stars has been bittersweet, as Arnold reveals in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE. "I have recently been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer and am currently undergoing treatment, including surgery and chemotherapy.” Arnold says.
I keep reading stories about how healthy the car industry is. If that’s true, how come so many car brands have croaked recently? Since ’08 at least seven have gone wheels up: Saab, Saturn, Suzuki, Mercury, Pontiac, Isuzu, and Hummer. That’s more dead brands in the space of six years than kicked the bucket during the 30 years prior. And I suspect it’s not over yet. There are several brands — some of them big names — looking a bit green around the gills lately. It would not surprise me to see any of the following go for that ride
President Obama, on Wednesday, made a big speech about “economic inequality” and vowed to spend his last three years in office working to increase the federal minimum wage, as well as a lot of other things. Just as an aside, every time I hear talk about increasing the minimum wage — there’s a strike on today at some fast food places to raise their wage to $15 an hour as well — I have a conversation something like this. “I think increasing the minimum wage is a wonderful idea. In fact, let’s raise it to $100 an hour.” “Oh, you’re being silly.” “No, imagine.
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Eric Kearney, the Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor facing scrutiny over his personal and business finances, revealed Wednesday that he, his wife and their publishing company owe more than $825,000 in late federal and state taxes. The disclosure followed nearly two weeks of questions that have overshadowed gubernatorial hopeful Ed FitzGerald´s introduction of Kearney as his running mate. And it came during a 95-minute teleconference with reporters in which Kearney repeatedly stressed that he was offering an "unprecedented" peek into a politician´s money matters. The session kept alive doubt about how thoroughly FitzGerald and his campaign vetted
Donna Baker of Adrian, Mich., owns an accounting firm, payroll company and retail store. Her husband, Kim, is the sixth generation owner of a dairy farm. While the four businesses are separate entities, they count as one employer under the health-care law due to a technicality — Mrs. Baker is a minority stakeholder in the 1,800-acre property that her husband’s farm sits on, plus she helps out with some of the farm’s bookkeeping. As a result, the Bakers are subject to aggregation rules in the U.S. tax code, which means they would be required to offer health-insurance benefits to their
Some members of Congress are about to get their own kind of sticker shock when they head to the new insurance exchanges. A few will get a price cut. As the Journal has reported, a provision in the health law requires lawmakers to get their benefits alongside small-business employees for the first time, and that means lawmakers’ premiums will suddenly be tied to their age. Members of Congress used to pay the same rate, regardless of how old they were, which was around $186 a month to cover just themselves on one popular plan after their employer (in this case, the
President Obama, in remarks about the economy today, said, The combined trends of income inequality and decreasing (economic) mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe. He then called for — drum roll – a higher minimum wage, repeal of the sequester, and extension of unemployment compensation benefits. And he stressed that Obamacare will boost the economy. It doesn’t appear to have dawned on the president yet that we’re entering the sixth year of the Obama presidency.
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
