The Secret To Financial Success?

I saw this in one of those ubiquitous chain e-mails which make their way around the internet. Whether it’s true or not I can’t say, but I’m going to assume that it’s substantially accurate in spirit if the numbers don’t completely bear out.

You & your girlfriend can live like a king! Just follow these proven 13 steps:
1. Don’t marry her.
2. Use your mom’s address for your mail.
3. The guy buys a house.
4. Guy rents out house to his girlfriend who has 2 of his kids.
5. Section 8 will pay $900 a month for a 3-bedroom home.
6. Lover signs up for ObamaCare; guy doesn’t have to pay out-the-butt for family insurance.
7. Lover goes to college for free being a single mother.
8. Lover gets $600 a month for food stamps.
9. Lover gets free cell phone.
10. Lover gets free utilities.
11. Guy moves into home but uses mom’s house for his mail.
12. Lover claims one kid & guy claims one kid on taxes. Now you both get to claim Head of Household @ $1800 credit.
13. Lover gets disability for being “crazy” or having a “bad back” @$1800 a month & never has to work again.
This plan is perfectly legal & is being executed now by millions of people.

A married couple with a stay-at-home-mom yields $0 dollars.

An unmarried couple with a stay-at-home-mom nets:
$21,600 disability +
$10,800 free housing +
$ 6000 free ObamaCare +
$ 6000 free food +
$ 4800 free utilities +
$ 6000 Pell Grant money to spend +
$12,000 a year in college tuition free from Pell Grant +
$ 8800 tax benefit for being a single mother =
—————————————————————-
$76,000 a year in benefits

Any idea why the country is $18+ trillion in debt?
Any idea why so many children are born with no father?
Any idea why so many couples are choosing to remain single?

Let’s make this an open thread. Feel free to shoot holes in the above.
