    Octuplet's mom on food stamps, publicist says

    This just keeps getting more ridiculous:

    Nadya Suleman, the mother of the octuplets born last month, gets $490 a month in food stamps, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday evening. Three of her first children also get federal supplemental security income because they are disabled, the Times reported.

    Suleman's publicist, Michael Furtney, confirmed the information.
    So let me get this straight - She was on food stamps and THREE of her SIX children were already so disabled that they get SSI payments, and she thought it would be a good idea to spend tens of thousands of dollars on fertility treatments for MORE kids?

    During an interview with Ann Curry on the TODAY show, Suleman denied being on welfare. Suleman told NBC News correspondent Ann Curry in an interview that she was not receiving welfare. Furtney said Suleman didn't consider the food stamps and SSI to be welfare.

    "In Nadya's view, the money that she gets from the food stamp program ... and the resources disabilities payments she gets for her three children are not welfare," he said. "They are part of programs designed to help people with need, and she does not see that as welfare."
    Oh, I'm sorry. I forgot we live in a world where we can unilaterally define things to mean what we want them to mean.

    During the interview with Curry, Suleman said, "I'm not receiving help from the government. I'm not trying to expect anything from anybody. [I] just wanted to do it on my own.
    NBC chief medical editor Dr. Nancy Snyderman has estimated the cost of delivering the infants and caring for them until they are healthy enough to leave the hospital at $1.5 million to $3 million.
    That's just fantastic. So, in addition to the $1.5 - $3 million that the public will be paying for these kids to be born, we're also on the hook for food stamps and SSI for the original three. And given that half of the first six were disabled, what do you think the odds are that a bunch of the next eight are as well?

    At this point, I truly am praying that she gets corporate sponsorships, because the rest of us should not be paying for this ****.

    Does everyone recipient of food stamps get the services of a publicist too?

    I agree with you NYU. Just when I think I couldn't be more disgusted with this attention whore, I find out I can. This pisses me off.

    My position on this issue is very simple: If you can't afford kids, don't bloody have any.

    The State is not there to help you out financially as soon as you squeeze the puppies out. The State is there to assist in case you fall on hard times at some point in your life. It's certainly not there to help make your demented dreams of being a single mother of a 50 come true.

    IT is right. The woman is completely mental.

    How is it possible that the public is paying for these services? Fertility treatments should be a opt-in procedure similar to breast enlargement surgery and liposuction.

    If you can't pay for it yourself then you shouldn't be having it done.

    Apparently she paid for the fertility treatments herself. So what that means is that this woman who was unemployed, out on disability, unmarried, living with her parents, with six kids at home (three of whom were disabled), and on public assistance saved up tens of thousands of dollars and then instead of

    1) Using it to get her own place for the kids,
    2) Using it for school for her children,
    3) Using it to get off of public assistance, or
    4) Using it to get special treatment for her disabled kids

    Instead used it to have 8 more kids.

    I think she received the money for the IVF from a personal injury settlement.

    That is why she is on disability. Go figure, you can be disabled and still pop out eight welfare babies.
