    How can we correct this issue?

    From: j.d
    ​This has been going on for a very long time and the question is, "HOW CAN WE CORRECT THIS ISSUE?"​ ​ Personally, I believe it's too late.​ Comments will be appreciated.



    You'll Need to Sit Down to Read This !!
    Can't you hear students telling their teachers they want to be welfare recipients
    when they grow up? The work ethic we inherited growing up has fallen prey to
    the 'welfare' system.

    The Cato Institute released an updated study showing that welfare benefits
    pay more than a minimum wage job in 33 states and the District of Columbia.

    Even worse, welfare now pays more than $15 per hour in 13 states.

    According to the study, welfare benefits have increased faster than minimum wage.
    It’s now more profitable to sit at home and watch TV than it is to earn an honest day’s pay.

    Hawaii is the biggest offender, where welfare recipients earn $29.13 per hour,
    or a $60,590 yearly salary, all for doing nothing.

    Here is the list of the states where the pre-tax equivalent “salary (?)” that welfare
    recipients receive is higher than having a job:

    1. Hawaii : $60,590
    2. District of Columbia :$50,820
    3. Massachusetts : $50,540
    4. Connecticut : $44,370
    5. New York : $43,700
    6. New Jersey : $43,450
    7. Rhode Island : $43,330
    8. Vermont : $42,350
    9. New Hampshire : $39,750
    10. Maryland : $38,160
    11. California : $37,160
    12. Oregon : $34,300
    13. Wyoming : $32,620
    14. Nevada : $29,820
    15. Minnesota : $29,350
    16. Delaware : $29,220
    17. Washington : $28,840
    18. North Dakota : $28,830
    19. Pennsylvania : $28,670
    20. New Mexico : $27,900
    21. Montana : $26,930
    22. South Dakota : $26,610
    23. Kansas: $26,490
    24. Michigan : $26,430
    25. Alaska : $26,400
    26. Ohio : $26,200
    27. North Carolina : $25,760
    28. West Virginia : $24,900
    29. Alabama : $23,310
    30. Indiana : $22,900
    31. Missouri : $22,800
    32. Oklahoma : $22,480
    33. Louisiana : $22,250
    34. South Carolina : $21,910

    As a point of reference: -the average Middle Class worker's annual income today
    is $50,000, down from $54,000 at the beginning of the Great Recession.

    Hawaii, DC, and Massachusetts actually pay more in welfare than the average
    working folks earn there.

    Is it any wonder that more and more stay home rather than look for a job?

    There has to be a drastic change... America is virtually bankrupt.

    Are we Nuts or what? How do we un-do this type of absurdity ???? …

    The Most prime offenders are our leaders in Washington!

    Salary of retired United States President ....$180,000 FOR LIFE.

    Salary of House/Senate....$174,000 FOR LIFE.

    Salary of Speaker of the House...$223,500 FOR LIFE!

    Salary of Majority/Minority Leader $193,400 FOR LIFE!

    These are ridiculous!!!

    COMPARE.....

    Average Salary of a teacher ... $40,065.

    Average Salary of Soldier DEPLOYED IN AFGHANISTAN ... $38,000.

    Now...Think about this prime example! ......

    Nancy Pelosi will retire as a Congress Person at $174,000 Dollars a year
    for the remainder of her LIFE..........

    PLUS, She has retired as Speaker with another $223,500 a year.

    PLUS, she will receive an additional $193,400 a year as Minority Leader.

    That's $803,700 Dollars a year for LIFE (including FREE medical as do all
    the others above, -which is not available to us .... the taxpayers) .

    She is just one of the hundreds of Senators and Congress that ride
    in and out every year on this gravy train!

    We've found where the cuts should begin to be made!


    Wake UP America!

    --Unless you really don't care, like those people,
    that your country is bankrupt -

    Term Limits, without a life long retirement clause.
    The only easy day was yesterday
    Dedicated to my brother in law who died
    doing what he loved being a Navy SEAL
