I’m so tired of hearing about all the money and effort in regards to animal fighting. Dog, chicken, cat, fish, bug etc. Want to know what I want to hear? I want to hear about programs for people like me – born and raised here, love my state and yet left behind.
I’m 31, single and make less than $25,000 a year. My daughter, mother, father, brother and I all live in the same rented home to try and make ends meet.
I can’t afford health insurance. I was denied Medicaid coverage for my daughter because I make $120 too much a month. I was denied food stamps because I make $60 too much a month.
I can’t even qualify for grants to better my education to try and make more money to support my family.
I don’t give two cents about who is fighting what critter. Maybe if I sit on my butt, pretend to look for a job then I’ll get Medicaid, food stamps and a government check. Since that seems to be the only way South Carolina takes care of its people.
