Can you tell me where I can find average welfare income data for welfare recipients in each State.

That is, add together the costs of a house, utilities, food, medical care, clothing, car and fuel, plus school costs and express that dollar figure as INCOME. That will help see why welfare is a better deal than working at meaningful jobs and identify which states are the best deal. No need to add in the money paid for college because not all recipients go to higher learning (or finish grade school for that matter).

Call me curious

This is the worst website I have ever seen. The website has the most out of date statistics with the worst sources that apparently no longer exist.

Nice. California alone has more caseloads than #2, #3, #4, and #5 put together. No wonder our sheeple here keep trying to put communists into power - they don't have the cajones to WORK for the American Dream!
