97. I heard that a couple of years' ago.
When the TLC/Discovery Channel special was released someone (anonymous source) from a local health office supposedly called a local paper and stated that ALL the children and the mother were on medicaid. The source also stated that all the children five and under, along with the mother, were all using WIC. I remember the source even gave a date and time for the mother's next WIC appointment, which I'm sure was immediately changed once released.

They want 17 children, let them. What slays me is that they are the "personal responsibility" types yet they use public resources. If this were a black family, a Muslim family, etc, they would be the first ones voicing their disgust with the system.
