OWS is always screaming "paying their fair share" but what about the other end of the spectrum: "Taking their fair share" One example (of many): A woman in Florida has 15 children. She is on public assistance ( and demands that "someone needs to pay"), she is a taker. Figure an average of 10k per year per child for public school education for 12 years her brood will "take" 1.8 million dollars (education alone) from the system all while recieving welfare, food stamps, free medical (yes, it does exist) and who knows what else she will draw from the government trough, so the question is: When do we cut off the leaches of society, what is her "fair share" of taking? How is this fair to a family of 4 who pays into the system and does not recieve the same amount back?
