Should I report my roommates for collecting welfare?
Okay so I'm about halfway through my freshman year of college, I work 35hrs a week and my boyfriend works 40 to 45 hrs a week we are barely making, we can hardly afford groceries. My roommate's mom gave her a lone-star card so that she can "buy" groceries, my roommate doesn't have a job and doesn't have to work because her mom pays her rent because her mom told the government she has a daughter living with her and her mom works part time at a liqueur store so I'm assuming she gets hosing as well. My roommate has her boyfriend living with her too, when they go grocery shopping they get enough food for a family of 5 for FREE! It's not fair, I don't see why they shouldn't have to get jobs. They get free medical, free groceries, free rent, and free college, but the govt doesn't know that she doesn't even live with her mom. I'm having to pay for all of those things out of MY pocket just because both my parents work. It's unfair. Should I tell?

Food stamp eligibility is based on the entire household income--which means they assume that the food stamps are being used by everyone. Either she has to share them with you (and other members of the household), or she is committing fraud... More
