'Too Fat to Work' Family Wants More Money

Oh boy, stories like this never get old. An obese British family of four is currently on welfare due to their alleged inability to work, and they want more money from the government.

The family, whose combined weight is 1,160 pounds, reportedly already receives more than $30,000 per year in disability benefits but they feel they deserve more. They claim it's not their fault that they can't work because their condition is "genetic".

If you ask me, all they need is a little help and guidance to get healthier, not more money to sit at home and be miserable! Maybe they genuinely don't know how to live a healthy lifestyle, but bottom line - ignorance is not an excuse to claim disability and bog down the system with CVD, asthma, diabetes and other conditions as a direct result of being obese! They must have never heard the saying "tell me what you eat and I'll tell you what you are".
