According to the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee, welfare spending per day per household in poverty is $168, which is higher than the $137 median income per day. When broken down per hour, welfare spending per hour per household in poverty is $30.60, which is higher than the $25.03 median income per hour.

"Based on data from the Congressional Research Service, cumulative spending on means-tested federal welfare programs, if converted into cash, would equal $167.65 per day per household living below the poverty level," writes the minority side of the Senate Budget Committee. "By comparison, the median household income in 2011 of $50,054 equals $137.13 per day. Additionally, spending on federal welfare benefits, if converted into cash payments, equals enough to provide $30.60 per hour, 40 hours per week, to each household living below poverty. The median household hourly wage is $25.03. After accounting for federal taxes, the median hourly wage drops to between $21.50 and $23.45, depending on a household’s deductions and filing status. State and local taxes further reduce the median household’s hourly earnings. By contrast, welfare benefits are not taxed."

It's all on the Democrats. They let the Rat Ba*t$rd have another go at it again to. So in a little less than four years from now, they will have wasted eight years doing nothing, but blaming bush, and the republicans for the whole thing going down the drain. While they shoveled more money into their pockets to buy gold and silver with before the dollar blows out.

$168 a day? That's a cheap price for votes when you're paying with someone else's credit.

hell must have frozen over, because i'm on the same page as FHB. yes, I am a libtard and i voted for obama, but i agree that if someone is capable of making even a slight contribution to society or to the community, doing so should be a condition of their government subsidy. obviously that doesn't apply to persons who are truly incapacitated or suffer from any illness that impairs their ability to function.

hold on while I write down this date....
I'd be curious to see just how many people would suddenly find work or just not pick up a check if they had to do something in order to get one. For the truly disabled, that's one thing.
The newwelfare is SS disability. I know several people that just decided they didn't want to work and filed. It takes a couple years and a long fight, but eventually, they all get it with a little persevearance. Then they get used to that free cheese and go out and work under the table and get paid twice. Seen it firsthand several times. Of course, Florida leads in fraudulent everything....

im not arguing for giving bums money. But for every dollar spent there was a dollar earned. Just lets not give it all to huge corporations who will hide the profits and avoid all the taxes.
There is a severe monetary issue going on but the way to confront it isnt through limiting handouts- Look at a pie graph of the economy- handouts are not an issue.
