    LOS ANGELES — The Southern California mother of octuplets receives $490 a month in food stamps and three of her first six children are disabled and receiving federal assistance, her publicist confirmed Monday evening.

    Spokesman Michael Furtney said Nadya Suleman did not want to disclose the nature of the disabilities, or the type or sum of the payments.

    Furtney confirmed the public assistance payments after two sources told The Los Angeles Times that Suleman was receiving food stamps and federal supplemental security income

    I'm wrong again. I was certain she was independently wealthy and was planning on supporting her kids without our help.

    Andrew, quit exaggerating. She only has 14 kids. There's a big difference between 16 and 14.

    Could be alchol fetal syndrome [sic], not sure what the equalivant of that is called for drug babies.

    This guy that worked for us PT back in 1993, had a girlfriend that got an SSI check each month that almost matched what the lowest paid employee in our company recieved net a month. (none of our employees made less than 8 an hr) Her family was from CA.

    She used to like to come over and hang out. We were finishing about 800 sq ft. Doing the paint and final trim. She wanted to try to paint so I gave her the roller and she started applying the paint. She said she had never painted before. She was doing a very good job at it. I asked her where did she work, what did she do. That is when she told me about her SSI, mother the alcholic, etc.. She would have attached herselves to us on a permanant basis something like a puppy dog would do.

    She was a pretty thing and I must admit not super bright. But I'm kinda thinking that for her and her two siblings to be supported their entire lives by the system without ever doing anything more than becoming someones steady income check, is a bit much. There is not always places for these kind of people out there to guide them or insure they are safe, cared for, etc...So this is the type of stuff society ends up with.

    Society can't just lock them away. It is not feasable and besides those civil rights come into play.

    Let me get this right? You support paying disability to disabled children EXCEPT when you think the mom has to many kids? You support paying disability to someone injured on the job EXCEPT when it is a woman that has more kids then you think she should have? You support Food Stamps, EXCEPT when it is to a woman that you think has to many kids?

    Do I have all that right?

    Remind me how in the other thread you all were screaming at the top of your lungs you wanted what is best for the kids, while now you are whining that children with disabilities should not receive payment because you think the mom has to many kids.

    Once again to restate, YOU ALL think someone with a valid disability should not receive payment for that disability if she has some magic number of kids over what ever YOU decide is acceptable?

    You all think children with valid disabilities should have the payments stopped because the mom had more kids. Do I have that about right?
