You want everyone else to pay for your mom. Why don't you? She's your mom. Why are you fobbing her off on the public dole?
They report that "A male reaching 65 years of age today (in 2000, the year of their study) can expect to receive $71,000 more in government 'transfer' benefits (of all kinds at both the federal and state levels, but mainly from Social Security and Medicare) than he will pay in taxes (of all kinds at both the federal and state levels) before he dies. A 65-year-old female can expect a net gain of more than twice that amount; she can expect $163,000 more in benefits than she will pay in taxes." - Walter Williams
I am her full time care taker. We both live on her $16k 'public dole.' I should take your advice and leave her and get a job. For $10 per hour. Hire a full time care taker for her and pay my own expenses. Or put her in a nursing home for $6k per month. I was never good at math so I didn't see before how easy this would be.
