States Where Welfare Recipients are Paid More Than Working People

Yet another from a friend of my dad’s. I can proudly say that my state is not on this, but I can also say that many states on this list didn’t surprise me. No wonder some of them have budget issues… Enjoy!

Working Teachers are paid $40k a year, non working welfare recipients are paid over$50 k /year, not including free tuition , transportation and free Pizza delivery , free phones and cable .

You work for 35 years and we get $ 20k /year in Social security ..
