Couple Claims They’re Too Fat To Get A Job - Demand This Of Taxpayers

With the entitlement culture reaching outrageous proportions in the UK, many taxpayers are starting to become frustrated that they're footing the bill for other people's bad choices. A television documentary show attempted to shed light on the problem.

The film 'Benefits: Too Fat To Work' featured Stephen Beer and Michelle Coombe. The couple both received disability benefits in the amount of $26,000. Because they are both morbidly obese, they say they can't work.

The couple complains that the meager amount is barely enough for them as well. They have to pay servants to carry out chores for them that they're unable to do themselves. They could barely afford their $5,000 wedding on public assistance.

The documentary attempts to point out the growing problem in England: as people’s waistlines grow, so does the burden on the working taxpayers. Beer and Coombe are not a rare event. It’s happening more and more that government taxpayer dollars are funding bad eating habits and sedentary lifestyles. Worse, the generous benefits are often allowing ‘poor’ people to indulge luxuries that working people can’t afford.

Beer says he realizes it's wrong for the couple to collect taxpayer benefits, but he blames the government for making it too easy for him and his new bride.
