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.
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 biggest offender, where welfare recipients earn $29.13 per
hour, or a $60,590 yearly salary, all 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

Another example of the fine, logical thinking coming from YOUR friends in Washington and from the state leaders who go along with it. There is something seriously wrong with these people who adopt programs like this. There would be justice in having a public lynching for this type of leadership.
I'm so proud of my hometown and what it has become. Recall 'em all. Let's start over.

Are these numbers based on single person or a family of four?

Taken from the article "When Welfare Pays Better Than Work" on the Cato Institute site....


Today, the Cato institute is releasing a new study looking at the state-by-state value of welfare for a mother with two children. In the Empire State, a family receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Medicaid, food stamps, WIC, public housing, utility assistance and free commodities (like milk and cheese) would have a package of benefits worth $38,004, the seventh-highest in the nation.
