I could only see that train of thought as racist if the body of its verbiage was girthy and essay like.

Don't get me started in 1981 Impalas with $4,000 rims.

I one time mused aloud if people who don't have health insurance but do have $4,000 rims should be made to sell their rims before they get any subsidies, but was widely accused of making a racist statement.

The 1996 law changed cash aid from a federal program to a series of state (and in some cases) county specific programs. So other than some broad guidelines, programs vary.

But in every jurisdiction I know assets are taken into account, including the value of personal property like jewelry and automobiles. So you can't have a $17,000 car. But you could have $15,000 rims on a $2,000 car, since they go by blue book.

I would have to look up the restrictions, but in my neck of the woods it is something like a $5000 car and a grand or so in the bank. You can own a house, but I believe there are restrictions on the value.

Food stamps have much less stringent rules.

I seem to recall that certain states base eligibility on income alone, or exclude certain assets such as a primary residence or 401k from consideration, no?

I know that's the case for food stamps. I remember the guy who won the lottery a couple years before and while still having lots of loot, they has no income and thus qualified.

I would bet some version of that happens in every state.

There are tons of restrictions in the states that I know of. They can check bank accounts, loans, pretty much everything you own they can find. So it would take serious fraud on the part of the applicant, probably with some kind of cooperation with someone in the office.

They should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Either that or ineptitude, but it happened in 2 states. I think it had something to do about collecting money because of one or more of their kids.

I'll bet there was some collusion with someone in the welfare department.

Lord Chisholm was finally sentenced for his part in a welfare scam where he and his wife, Lady Chisholm received almost $168,000 in welfare payments from the states of MN and FL. They did this with almost $3M in assets including a palatial estate on a very desirable lake in MN and owning a yacht in.

He'll be out in May, his wife was released in December.

Seriously? $3M in assets and collecting welfare? How does this happen?
