More takers than earners

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.  Who needs minimum wage?


  1. With 50 million Americans on food stamps, 1/6 of all Americans, the dream of the ObamaNation is becoming a reality.

    1. Hello LL,

      Sad, just wait till Obamacare kicks in. I blame the Republicans as much as the Democrats for the fall of America.
