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.

To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for a 40-hour week, while the average job pays $25.00 an hour.

    and Bernie Sanders wants to give more freebies? How will he be able to sustain his free welfare programs as the working class shrinks? Seems that the Demos would want to encourage business instead of taxing them out of America like Ford is doing now, closing factories and moving them overseas while laying off thousands of workers.
