These people are the hope for the city and we must call a halt to this unfortunate trend if we ever expect to see a vibrant city again.
It took me a couple of minutes to get it, but NINE welfare recipients (9 kids by the time he’s 25 years old) collecting about $500 each(depending on the state) Aide to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) monthly payments equals $4,500 a month!!!
He comes from a family with 8 brothers and 5 sisters! His parents had FOURTEEN children, all presumably living in New Orleans and making their way as "entrepreneurs" eligible for similar benefits.
Now, he shrewdly insures his "companion" Kawanner is not his "wife" to qualify as a single parent household without child support collection obligations. As an "entrepreneur" he insures he has no reportable W2 income to maintain AFDC financial eligibility.
Add food stamp benefits, free medical under state/federal MEDICAID program, free school lunches, low-income heating assistance, Supplement Security Income (SSI) and SSI Caretaker Supplement Program of $250 for first child and $150 each additional and $400 to caretaker parent, child care assistance, job access loans,
Community Service Job training program, transportation assistance, children's services network, on and on and on. Now that indeed is a real Entrepreneur.
Makes one proud to be a Democrat.
