    Re: Have you ever received government assistance.

    I am a single male and I have received government assistance in the form of a pell grant and extra scholarship money from my state because of me and my families' low income. I also have a stafford loan.

    Not as an adult no

    Growing up yes

    My mother collected UI for short periods of time and received Workers Compensation benifits for nearly all my life (my father fell off a roof the company he was working was resurfacing)

    Workers Comp paid for my glass's and dental care

    Government assistance is a broad category. If you really want to know about it, you have to talk about all of it.

    Re: Have you ever received government assistance.

    Ive received assistance several times in paying off hospital bills I couldn't afford because I cant afford health insurance and dont qualify for Medical.

    I dont feel especially bad about accepting the help, when I had a job I payed regular taxes and there's no way I could handle an emergency loan to cover a visit to the hospital on top of my current loans.

    Re: Have you ever received government assistance.

    I got 2 Federal grants for college before I was married, does that count in the poll? It is government assistance.

    Since I consider it such, I voted I am married and have received government assistance.

    For the intention of this particular poll, I was only referring to those programs that are available to people who are without income or on a very limited income.

    Re: Have you ever received government assistance.

    I said no, because I haven't received any of the assistance described. However, I have received student loans and other school assistance. I am lucky to live in a society enlightened enough to know that it is a stronger force in the world with an educated populace.

    Re: Have you ever received government assistance.

    I never depended on government assistance unless your count the free school lunch program at school when I was a child and my mother was sometimes on food stamps,wic and welfare.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
