Welfarely Stated

Our most recent welfare frauds:

1. Amanda Clayton, Lottery Winner & Food Stamp Recipient

Amanda Clayton … won $1 million in the Michigan State Lottery but is still collecting food stamps. Clayton, who says she owns two homes and a new car, receives $200 a month in food assistance from the state-issued Michigan Bridge Card, which is meant to benefit lower-income residents in the nation’s eighth most economically depressed state.

Clayton isn’t embarrassed about living off the state even though she now finds herself in the nation’s top tax bracket. “I mean I kinda do,” Clayton told Local 4 when asked if she had a “right” to the government welfare.

“I feel that it’s OK because I mean, I have no income and I have bills to pay,” she said. “I have two houses.”  (Lottery winner on food stamps even after $1 million jackpot)

Note: Michigan DHS reports they have removed Ms. Clayton from the dole as of March 8th, 2012.  She collected her windfall profits in September, 2011.

2. Unidentified Seattle Woman Living In Million-Dollar Home, Receiving Public Housing Vouchers

A Seattle woman who is receiving welfare assistance from Washington state also happens to live in a waterfront house on Lake Washington worth more than a million dollars.

Federal agents raided the home this weekend but have not released the woman or her husband’s name because they have not officially been charged with a crime.

However, federal documents obtained by KING 5 News show the couple currently receives more than $1,200 a month in public housing vouchers, plus state and government disability checks and food stamps. They have been receiving the benefits since 2003.

The 2,500 square-foot home, which includes gardens and a boat dock, is valued at $1.2 million. And even though the couple has been receiving the benefits for nearly 10 years, records show that they accurately listed the address of their current home when applying for the state and federal benefits.  (Seattle welfare recipient lives in million-dollar home)

3. Barry Soetoro aka Barack Obama aka Harrison Bounel, President of the United States

With no authorization from Congress, President Barack Obama has announced that his administration–through the Federal Housing Administration–will insure refinanced mortgages for 2 to 3 million borrowers without verifying their income or even if they hold a job…

Any American with a mortgage insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) endorsed on or before May 31, 2009 and who is current with their mortgage payments would qualify…  (Obama Will Make Taxpayers Guarantee Mortgages Without Checking Borrowers’ Incomes or Employment)

  1. Hell, maybe I can afford to move back to the States. I always liked the Seattle area.

    They do want more and more people dependent on government, even if they are rich,

    Not the “food stamp president?” Au contraire. The Obama years highlighted in gray:

  5. Bob Mack says:

    And then there’s this: IG: Welfare Recipients Traded Food Stamps for Cash to Buy Drugs and Guns

    Some of the record total of 46.3 millions recipients of food stamps–a federal welfare program–have traded their benefits at a discount with corrupt retailers to get cash to buy drugs and weapons, the inspector general (IG) for the Department of Agriculture (USDA) told Congress today.

    …Kevin Concannon, the USDA undersecretary for FNS who testified alongside the IG, told lawmakers that fraud by program recipients who misrepresent their circumstances or misuse their benefits happens “relatively infrequently.”

    With all due respect, Kevin Concannon doesn’t know what the hell he’s talking about. Ask anybody (except an SEIU member) who’s ever worked in a welfare office.

  6. Obama is seeing to it that the taxpayers are on the hook for his every whim.
