The purpose of welfare is to help needy families for a short period of time, with the goal of getting them back on their feet as quickly as possible, but the welfare assistance program has become so abused that welfare fraud is becoming a big enough problem to warrant the prosecution of some of the more serious offenders.
When people, who don’t really need welfare assistance, start receiving large amounts of money from it, that is a sign that the system is broken, in big trouble and needs to be revamped.
One woman who received over 100,000 dollars in welfare benefits definitely abused the system. Why? Because her husband was a wealthy DC lawyer!
From Right Wing News:
This woman is an extreme case of welfare fraud, but it does show what is possible with the current welfare system. Helen Agbapuruonwu, 41, lives in Arlington, VA and was a recipient of welfare through food stamps and other means.
At the same time that Helen was collecting welfare, her husband was working in Washington D.C. as an extremely successful lawyer.
In fact, records show that he was earning an average of one and a half million dollars a year. That is $1,500,000 a year. And yet they still felt somehow justified in obtaining government assistance meant for the needy.
Helen’s husband, Fidelis Agbapuruonwu, was the opposite of a needy welfare recipient. Over the years, Helen has collected over 100,000 dollars in welfare. Which seems like a really small number compared to what her husband was making. So, what in the world could have led her to commit the fraud?
The Arlington Police spoke out about the incident saying that they “…hope it sends a message that if you are taking public assistance it’s truly intended for those in need, and we’re committed to ensuring those who need the most help receive it.”
Just another example of how easy it is to fool bleeding-heart, Liberal suckers working for the welfare department in America and how badly the system needs to be fixed.
This women needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and be made an example for those who are considering such fraud. Stealing money from American taxpayers is a sick, despicable act, and she needs to be held accountable.
