America’s Death Spiral!!!

This explains the problem.

These 11 States now have more people that are on Welfare than are gainfully employed.

The Senate Budget Committee reported that in fiscal year 2011, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support.

What’s the problem with that much support?

Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000, which averages out to $137.13 a day.

To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for a 40-hour week, while the average job pays $25.00 an hour.

Pretty sad, isn’t it?

Editor’s comment: I don’t know about you but most Americans don’t make anywhere near $25.00 an hour, which means (according to what is written above) that those on welfare are better off than most of us. Does this seem right to you?

  1. You might want to do your research regarding “Corporate Welfare vs Social Welfare”, I get sick and tired of fools, Trolls, moron’s and a$$hole’s blame social welfare on crap that has no preference with their anger. Tax payers spend more towards corporate welfare vs social welfare and perhaps, these links will either shut you and make you think, before smearing those who truly need food stamps … House (R) cuts social programs to increase tax subsidies to corporate welfare and that has to stop … so stop whining about families on social welfare. We spend 3 times more towards corporate welfare … those greedy basins! Worse is they pay less taxes than you and I … talk about tax inequality?

  2. I call BS I know a few people who get food stamps. These people can barely make it through the month. Senior citizens, and disabled people every time they get a raise on their disability check that much if not more is taken off their food stamps. A married couple in their 80’s only get about $100 a month in food stamps. They can’t go to store so a family member has to take them or shop for them. He is an army veteran and she was a hospital employee. They paid their dues to the government and should be taken care of. Our so called public servants who get $90,000 plus for the rest of their life are the ones ripping us off. They should try living off these wages. And you can,t count the health care as money going in their pocket it isn’t’. You should try living off $500-800 a month when rent is $500 and up in most places. And the ones I know pay their own rent it is not government subsidized.

    • I agree that our government officials that serve only one or two terms and are then eligible to receive their pay until death should be discontinued, but then I also think that we have way too many on welfare that are capable of finding a job and working for their wages. There is too much wrong in our society and it seems as if nothing is being done to make things better. As for the elderly, they SHOULD be taken care of better than they are, but I mean the ones who actually paid into the system and not the ones who are getting social security when they never worked a day in their lives. That too is wrong. I could go on, but what’s the use.
