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?
