@Denise67. The majority "non-welfare" mothers of small children are working moms simply because raising a family, paying the mortgage, etc, requires two incomes. To be a stay at home Mom these days is a benefit of hard work and planning on the part of the parents, through sacrifice and thoughful decisionmaking. To blindly assume that mothers on welfare somehow are entitiled to enjoy raising their children at home on the expense backs of taxpayers and "mothers that do work", is the essence of "entitlement". You are entitled to procreate but no one should be beholden to support you, if you aren't at least prepared to make the same effort as those who are paying the bills.
