These 11 States now have More People on Welfare than they do Employed!

Via Billy

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.


  1. The scary part: look at how many electoral votes are controlled by these states. Then riddle me this: if the majority of the voters in these states are getting such a sweet deal, how are we ever going to fix this before they pull the rest of us down with them?

  2. I can't believe West Virginia isn't on there.
