Now would probably be a really bad time to mention again that Federal ‘workers’ – the 17th highest paid employees – owe $ billions in back taxes

Quit Your Job! Household Welfare Now $168 Per Day, $30 Higher Than Median Income

(Independent Journal Review) On average the government spends $168 per household on various assistance programs, one-fifth more than the median income of $137.

As the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee reported (after all, who else in government is going to do it?), welfare spending per hour per household in poverty is $30.60, which is higher than the $25.03 median income per hour.

The Weekly Standard points out that direct welfare payments are not taxed:

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.”

Welfare recipients never had it so good. This is not to say that poor people are rich, or that life is easy for everyone on food stamps or on some other form of government assistance. It’s just that conservatives would rather poor people be working, rather than paying their way through life on other people’s dime (which at this point, is their children’s dime).

[...] Progressives have been gushing about big government programs since the invention of the telephone, and this is the logical consequence of welfare state spending without limit: people find it easier to go on the government dole than to strive for a work paycheck.

From Senate Budget Committee Ranking Member:

Why work? Seriously, why not everyone quit their jobs and go sign up for government welfare? It’s compassionate and oh-so-progressive. That’s the message the Democrat Party has been churning out for decades, and even some Republicans like George W. Bush fell for it.

It’s much wiser to heed the words of Benjamin Franklin:

“I am for doing good to the poor, but… I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed…that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”

But, but… making people uncomfortable is cruel! And intergenerational poverty and a collapsed economy isn’t?

    I was dirt poor for a while. Ramen noodle (12/$1) and tomato soup (3/$1) poor, back in the early 90′s. Lived in a falling down mold and bug infested trailer with a collapsing roof, frost on the walls in winter. Decided that was not the life for me, left my husband behind, went back to school, got a STEM degree, make decent bucks today. A daily dose of two slices of bread for dinner can do wonders to stimulate ambition.

    Why work??? I just asked a unemployment councilor (lady who helps unemployed people get jobs) that exact same question last week to see what she would say and she agreed with my negative overtone. I am seriously worried. That is why we are resorting back to my original plan to move out of the country. I am not going to work 16 hour days to support other people. Otherwise I will only work 20.

    Now gun control. You will not pull the sheeple out of there trance. Maybe Alex Jones will have some luck but I don’t trust him either. Life or death everyone will fold. It is easy to talk patriotic when times are still bearable. It only takes five minutes for the Bildeburgs to buy you out. Every single day I see the government taking over another institution. That is why the great Lance Armstrong is being harassed. McCain wanted the gov to take over professional sports 6 years ago when he got on his self righteous anti-steroid tirade. The anti-steroid jerks cannot even run around the block and they are all on 4 or 5 different heart/blood pressure medications. Damn hypocrites!

    Yeah, when me and my wife work 40+ hours a week combined to barely pay a mortgage and feed and clothe ourselves and my kids it really frustrates me to see people with iPhones using food stamp cards to pay for their groceries. I can’t afford an iPhone, but yet someone who has to use food stamps can?

    Anyone in the middle class is the modern day slave. We work for the comfort of others to live off of our dime.
