WELFARE ON STEROIDS?

Our brilliant President and his blind mice Democrats in Congress are pushing to get more people into welfare before the 2014 elections. They are pushing for another raise the minimum wage to eliminate poverty.  Every time they do this we end up with more people on welfare as it pays better. Obama has again used an Executive Order to add more costs to all government contracts and none of this nonsense will add one job for an unemployed worker. Going back to work would be a pay cut. When you absorb the following facts even a babbling idiot can see that welfare is a far better way of life than working until they get the minimum wage up to at least $30 an hour. 

 The Cato Institute released a study showing that welfare benefits pay more than a minimum wage job in 33 states and the District of Columbia.

Even worse, welfare pays more than $15 per hour in 13 states. What is needed is for States to offer free one way tickets for anyone on welfare to move to Hawaii or one of the other top 13 states on the following list.

According to the study, welfare benefits have increased faster than minimum wage. It’s now more profitable to sit at home than it is to earn an honest day’s pay.

Hawaii is the Number one place for the unemployed to relocate, Welfare recipients there earn $29.13 per hour, or a $60,590 yearly salary, for sitting on their butts. If all of the people who earn mimimum wage in states other than the top 13 on the list below would move to one of them, it might wake up the people who pay for welfare.

Here is the list of the states where the pre-tax equivalent “salary” that welfare recipients receive is higher than having a job:

1. Hawaii: $60,590

2. District of Columbia: $50,820

3. Massachusetts: $50,540

4. Connecticut: $44,370

5. New York: $43,700

6. New Jersey: $43,450

7. Rhode Island: $43,330

8. Vermont: $42,350

9. New Hampshire: $39,750

10. Maryland: $38,160

11. California: $37,160

12. Oregon: $34,300

13. Wyoming: $32,620

14. Nevada: $29,820

15. Minnesota: $29,350

16. Delaware: $29,220

17. Washington: $28,840

18. North Dakota: $28,830

19. Pennsylvania: $28,670

20. New Mexico: $27,900

21. Montana: $26,930

22. South Dakota: $26,610

23. Kansas: $26,490

24. Michigan: $26,430

25. Alaska: $26,400

26. Ohio: $26,200

27. North Carolina: $25,760

28. West Virginia: $24,900

29. Alabama: $23,310

30. Indiana: $22,900

31. Missouri: $22,800

32. Oklahoma: $22,480

33. Louisiana: $22,250

34. South Carolina: $21,910

Can you imagine how many roads and bridges could be improved with this wasted labor we pay to sit on their butts?

They could pick up trash on our highways.

Some could help remove snow.

All could lick envelopes, empty wastebasket’s, sweep floors, and greet people with a smile for a local, state or federal government office.

Maybe NSA could let them monitor calls.

How many Americans know that roads were paved, National and State Parks were built, TVA dams erected etc. in the 1930’s by the same American families that today are paid not to work?

Welfare is now viewed by our President as a Constitutional right.

Do you think we should reform welfare? I do.
