These 11 States now have More People on Welfare than they do Employed!


 

Last month, the Senate Budget Committee reports 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.

 

AND YOU AND I ARE PAYING FOR IT!!!

 

Does this even remotely seem right??

I'm just glad that now I'm paying my fair share. Thanks Obama for opening my eyes. I've been blind for so many years.

 This is rediculous.   FW:FW:FW:FW:RE:FW:FW:FW:FW.

If you spent 1/5 the amount of time it takes to read this garbage to actually googling whether this was true you wouldn't have wasted all of our time.

But, but, but, these facts aren't true!!!!! What's amazing is how popular crap like this gets on the internet.  I think people posting, forwarding, etc., without ever even looking into whether they are true or not is what makes them so popular.

I hear ya.  Might be a little edgier cause it's monday.  I also get tired of seeing misinformation constantly spread about because few ever check to see if its true in the first place.

First off, as per the links freezer posted (one link does not work), this all started when Forbes magazine listed these 11 states as "danger spots for investors", and they based their finding on 2 factors: there are more takers and makers and the credit worthiness of the state.
Both snopes and politifact come to the conclusion that the data used to determine there are more takers than makers is not fair nor accurate in their OPINION. I guess I think the data that was used to determine if there are more takers than makers is accurate and fair, so I dont think snopes or politifact are right. Here is a couple of blurps from politifact, only 3 for workers for every 2 welfare receipents, yikes!

Nationally in 2011, Rector said, the average number of recipients was approximately 100 million -- nearly a third of the US population, he noted. According to the bureau’s employment data, 140 million people had a job that year.

Upshot: There were three employed people for every two "welfare" recipients, including children, as defined by the Heritage Foundation.

I live in Illinois and a few days ago I got to witness the following. I was behind a lady at the local grocery store. She had an I-phone, hair extensions, gold rings and chains, nails done up, tatoos all over and a coach bag. She had $300 plus in food items and $40 in other items. She used her food stamp card to pay for the food. She then pulled out a hand full of 100 dollar bills and started thumbing through them. After a little bit she found a couple 20 dollar bills and handed them to the clerk. She then said "I was begining to think all I had was 100's". When I left the store, I saw the same lady loading her FOOD STAMP paid for food into her Escalade. So now I know where my portion is going to..

You are right Freezerfiller.  I've adopted my own Bobkat Rule, which says to me "All political crap that is cutn' pasted or sent along to me via e-mail is AUTOMATICALLY WRONG until proved otherwise!"    The collarary to my rule is the addition "Especially when seen on FBO!"  
I don't search webistes like Snopes and many other to find out if something is false, i just search the internet nowadays to try to find out if something is true or not or evenb contains a bit of truth spun or taken out of context.  Haven't kept score, but guessing that well over 90% turns out NOT to be true.  
The bad part of it is the number of people who believe so much stuff that can't be true, and even when its pointed out that it ISN'T true, still continue to post comments indicating that they still believe it!    I used to think that was funny, but now i find it quite a sobering thought regarding the future of the country.

Yep, keep believing there arent more takers than makers, it just cant be true because snopes said so. Just ignore the national debt clock, all the red numbers cant be right, especially the debt per citizen and the debt per taxpayer figures. Keep on handing out the "free" money to the unfortunate people like dawg experienced. Those 11 states are just fine financially, no need to change anything, except maybe tax the taxpayers more. Its all BS, just move along people and get back to work.
