Child Care Loophole? You Could Drive a Truck Through It
Welfare programs, which were alledgedly designed as temporary, get back on your feet since you lost your job here’s a helping hand you can hold for a wee bit, seem to be quite frequently abused by the recipients. Child care programs, which are simply a subsidary program of the welfare programs are evidently no different.
Out of Racine, Wisconsin comes a state funded child care program story which illustrates just how profitable these programs can be for those poor, needy recipients, when they play their cards right.
...a young woman has tapped into a home-based money-making operation that netted her and her three sisters more than half a million in taxpayer dollars since 2006.
And they did it with the blessing of the state.
All four had been in-home child-care providers. Collectively they have 17 children. For years, the government has paid them to stay home and care for each other’s children.
Nothing illegal about it under the rules of Wisconsin Shares, the decade-old child-care assistance program designed alongside Wisconsin’s welfare-to-work program.
Hey, but it’s for the children, right?
