Nadya Suleman is planning to go on welfare. She’s no longer on food stamps, so she’s moving on to the next thing!
According to the Whittier Daily News, she is thinking about applying for the federal assistance called the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program.
She said in a statement yesterday, "If I need to apply for WIC to provide my babies with formula, then I'm going to."
WIC provides federal grants to states for food, health care referrals and nutrition education for low-income women and children up to age 5 who are found to be at nutritional risk.
The program would provide the octuplets, the six older children under age 8, and Suleman with baby formula, cereal, milk, cheese, vegetables and juice.
That would certainly help out with her bills! According to Kaiser, her formula bill each month would cost $2000. Suleman said her priority is to feed her children and not worry about scrutiny regarding public assistance.
She says, "I have to let go of what people think. I can't live like that.” She can’t face the reality that tax payers are making it possible for her to eat and have a roof over her head every night!
