    This is unsustainable. America is poised to flush down the financial tubes if we're unable/unwilling to change this.


    Have you ever wondered why very few Hawaiians are working when you visit those islands?

    Can't you just hear students telling their teachers in the future, they want to be welfare recipients & work the system when they grow up…?

    The Cato Institute released an updated 2016 study showing that welfare benefits pay more than a minimum wage job in 33 American states, and the District of Columbia.

    Even worse, welfare pays more than $15 per hour to stay home in 13 states.

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

    Hawaii is the biggest offender, where welfare recipients earn $29.13per hour, or a $60,590 yearly salary for doing nothing.

    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


    Hawaii , DC , and Massachusetts pay more in welfare than the average working folks earn there.

    Is it any wonder that they stay home rather than look for a job.

    Time for a drastic change... America is virtually bankrupt.

    Note that California is $18.50 an hour. Are we Nuts or what? How do we un-do this type of stupidity … This is crazy!

    Now if you think that’s bad, read about these salaries:

    Salary of retired United States Presidents $180,000 FOR LIFE
    Salary of House/Senate...$174,000 FOR LIFE.
    This is beyond stupid !
    Salary of Speaker of the House ..$223,500 FOR LIFE!
    This is really stupid.
    Salary of Majority/Minority Leader $193,400 FOR LIFE!
    Ditto last line.

    Aww Cam... don't get me started. You do realize that this country is already bankrupt... when the deficit is greater than the GDP.

    It's all just another intentional deceptive shift towards becoming a Socialist country... when the working class is covering financially for the non working class... while all the Elite live in luxury and want for non-necessties.

    Personally... nevermind... I'm not getting on that soapbox now.

    Boy... you really picked a loaded subject this time. :rolleyes: :eek:

    I be curious if you could do a breakdown of statistics on those numbers to see how many recipients are non- naturalized.

    Does it matter? Kinda... but not from an ethnicity standpoint.

    Then again... it's been this way since the beginning of the human race. Only difference back then was... if you didn't work... you didn't live.

      I also think the U.S. should bring back the WPA. People wanna eat... they gotta work.
