Welfare Arithmetic

The federal poverty threshold for a family of four is $22,350.

If you divide total federal and state spending by the number of households with incomes below the poverty line, the average spending per household in poverty was $61,194.

Got that? If the poor were paid cash, they would have over $83,000 of income.

Of course, they don't get $83,000, they get much less after overhead costs are incurred. I will leave you to ponder those costs. My point would be why not cut out out the middleman and not pay them cash.

What If Romney Wins?

Say he wins. We will still have far too many socialists around to be able to enjoy life. They will constantly be making noise. It would be too costly to colonize Mars with them. They are not worthless. They can be useful. Here is one way they could be productive. Just substitute liberal for poor in second panel.


I see it as a win-win. Fewer noisy liberals and less water used in fracking.
