I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn’t, than live my life as if there isn’t, and die to find out there is!

Another government program that is not sustainable

Confirmed true by: TruthorFiction.com


The Cato Institute released an updated 2013 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

As a point of reference the average Middle Class annual income today is
$50,000, down from $54,000 at the beginning of the Great Recession. Hawaii,
DC, and Massachusetts pay more in welfare than the average working folks earn

Is it any wonder that they stay home rather than look for a job. Time for a
drastic change. America is virtually bankrupt.

Are we Nuts or what? How do we un-do this type of stupidity on the part of
Americans? This is crazy!

Salary of retired US Presidents: $180,000 FOR LIFE

Salary of House/Senate: $174,000 FOR LIFE

Salary of Speaker of the House: $223,500 FOR LIFE!

Salary of Majority/Minority Leader: $193,400 FOR LIFE!

Average Salary of a teacher: $40,065

Average Salary of Soldier DEPLOYED IN AFGHANISTAN: $38,000

Think about this.
Nancy Pelosi will retire as a Congress Person at $174,000 Dollars a year for
LIFE. She has retired as SPEAKER at $223,500 a year. PLUS she will receive an
additional $193,400 a year as Minority Leader. That's $803,700 Dollars a year
for LIFE including FREE medical which is not available to us ... the taxpayers

She is just one of the hundreds of Senators and Congress that float in and out
every year!

I think we found where the cuts should be made!
