Rampant fraud and increased poverty:
'Welfare Spending Equates to $168 Per Day for Every Household in Poverty'
The amount of money spent on welfare programs equals, when converted to cash payments, about "$168 per day for every household in poverty"...
...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.
History teaches us -- or at least, the intelligent among us, which rules out Democrats -- that collectivism spreads misery.
We are headed for fiscal collapse -- and the welfare state keeps growing like a cancer, incentivizing sloth, formalizing a culture of dependency, and killing self-sufficiency.
Liberty, I am sad to say, is on the wane.
