Heh ok, so out of curiosity I actually goolged Octomom and found some fun stuff. Keep in mind I don't have sources for most of this, so take it entirely at face value.
'She is receiving government aid fraudulently. She has gotten over $160,000 for a back injury from disability. She also got a workman's comp settlement. This is fraudulent because if your back is ok to carry 6 pregnancies, (before the litter of 8) and to go to school. You are well enough to work. She also receives over $700.00 per child for 3 of her children in social security. One reportedly has Autism, and the other 2 the disablilities are suspect. She also has student loans. the most current is for $50,000. that she plans on living on for the next year instead of going to school. School loans are for school expenses.
According to her mother, she never paid for anything. The whole financial burden has fallen upon her parents effectively driving them into bankruptcy. The SSI for her children's disabilities are for any special treatment that they need. Not for IVF or plastic surguries.
Her million dollar plus medical bills are going to be paid for by the California taxpayers.
This woman is an expert at milking the system. And she uses sympathy for her children to con hard working people out of their money so she can sit back and be a baby machine, thereby getting more money.

Octomom was obsessed with having a massive number of kids for most of her life and if she could have done it the old fashioned way she would have but she apparently couldn't. So, she found money anywhere she could and used the rest of her family members to get what she wanted. She knew exactly what she was getting into, it was planned all along. She had multiple IVF procedures, even had a pair of twins because of it prior to the 8. There was no ignorance, no temporary insanity involved here. She did this with clear headed resolve. Resolve to get what SHE wanted, damn anyone or anything that might get in her way...you know...like needing diapers...and a job...and school....and the like....
