Octuplets Will Be Well Cared For ... by Taxpayers

To the surprise of absolutely no one, 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.

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

In her view these are just payments made for people with legitimate needs and are not, in her view, welfare,” Furtney said. “She just believes that there are programs for people with needs and she and her children qualify for some of them.” 

In other words, she believes money grows on trees and that the Federal Government can print an endless supply without affecting others.  Fortunately for her, ignorance is bliss.   Unfortunately for the rest of us, ignorance can be very costly.

In an interview that aired Monday, Suleman told NBC “Today” show anchor Ann Curry that she does not receive welfare, a story which Ann Curry all too eagerly bought, hook, line and sinker.

Her six other children are under the age of 7. All 14 children were the result of in-vitro fertilization…

In an interview with celebrity news Web site RadarOnline.com, Angela Suleman said she and Nadya’s father pleaded with her first fertility doctor not to treat their daughter again. She said her daughter went to another doctor.

“I’m really angry about that,” Angela Suleman said of the doctor’s decision to perform the procedure. “She already has six beautiful children. Why would she do this? I’m struggling to look after her six. We had to put in bunk beds, feed them in shifts and there’s children’s clothing piled all over the house.”

Angela Suleman said Nadya’s boyfriend was the biological father of all 14 children, but that she refused to marry him (because she wouldn't qualify for as much government - assistance - that - grows - on - trees - but - isn't - welfare.

“He was in love with her and wanted to marry her,” she said. “But Nadya wanted to have children on her own."
