Do me a favor, be wary of judging family that are on welfare. Unless you have their illness, you can never really place yourself in their shoes. My family for years unfairly and wrongly judged me. I bet even today there are some in my family who still have no clue as to how bad my illness is. I use to look down on people on welfare... until I became sick and walked a mile in their shoes. Some illnesses are invisible, like my illness, CFS. Sometimes the cover does not represent the book very well. Just saying. You could be right about your family members for all I know though.
