OctoBucks: More Needed by Nadya Suleman

According to the WDN, a low-income family of 15 -- the size of Suleman's -- would have to make more than $112,480 through June 30 to not be eligible for government supplied formula, milk, vegetables, fruit, cereal and cheese. This should make the no-income Suleman a shoo-in. Suleman has been at the center of a media storm ever since her identity as OctoMom became known and her life seems to lurch from one controversy to another. The most recent has seen her embrace -- and summarily throw out of her new La Habra house -- the volunteer nannies provided by the nonprofit Angels in Waiting foundation, as well as sniping with celebrity attorney Gloria Allred, who had organized the nanny arrangement for her.
Although Suleman's now well-aware of criticism about her reliance upon public assistance to maintain her enormous household, she told the Whittier reporter that her main goal is her children's well-being.
"I have to let go of what people think," she said. "I can't live like that."
