If you are on food stamps, you should not have a iPhone, or several dogs who you can't afford to spay/neuter and who you let run around and get pregnant!. The government is not responsible for your debts if you took out student loans, pay them back. You didn't need to go to that big fancy expensive school. Not everyone should have a house. If you only make 9 an hour, why would you even think of taking on a mortgage??
