Are we this STUPID

Unread post by geoworks » November 1st, 2019, 11:33 am


Have you ever wondered why very few Hawaiians are working when you visit those islands? All but a few States on the following list are Democrat strongholds ---so go figure! Democrats want to be taken care of by the government --- that’s the fundamental basis of a Democrat.

Can't you just hear students telling their teachers in the future, they want to be welfare recipients & work the system when they grow up…?

The Cato Institute released an updated 2016 study showing that welfare benefits pay more than a minimum wage job in 33 American states, and the District of Columbia.

Even worse, welfare pays more than $15 per hour to stay home 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 $29.13per hour, or a $60,590 yearly salary 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 l
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

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

Is it any wonder that they stay home rather than look for a job.

Time for a drastic change... America is virtually bankrupt.

Note that California is $18.50 an hour. Are we Nuts or what? How do we un-do this type of stupidity … This is crazy!

Now if you think that’s bad, read about these salaries:

Salary of retired United States Presidents $180,000 FOR LIFE
Salary of House/Senate...$174,000 FOR LIFE.
This is beyond stupid !
Salary of Speaker of the House ..$223,500 FOR LIFE!
This is really stupid.
Salary of Majority/Minority Leader $193,400 FOR LIFE!
Ditto last line.

Average Salary of a teacher ... $40,065
Average Salary of Soldier DEPLOYED IN AFGHANISTAN .. $38,000

Think about this!

Nancy Pelosi will retire as a Congress Person at $174,000 Dollars a year for LIFE. She will retire as SPEAKER at $223,500 a year Plus she will receive an additional $193,400 a year for when she was Minority Leader, the fact that she has become rich while in office notwithstanding.
That's $803,700 Dollars a year for LIFE including FREE medical which is not available to us .... the taxpayers
She is just one of the hundreds of Senators and Congresspersons that float in and out of Congress every year!

I think we found where the cuts should be made!

If you agree ....please pass this on, I just did.
AND , can you imagine paying AOC these sums for life ????

Anybody catch the presidents rally in Mississippi last NIGHT. He said something that I never knew. I knew we were in a lot of countries with our military in varied capacities to help, stabilize and watch over them. But I never dreamed it was 94 of them. Honestly, I never knew there were 94 countries on the planet.
Not everyone will agree with, understand you, like you, appreciate your character, personality or politics. Not even a few benefiting from your knowledge and/or generosity. But stay true to your beliefs and convictions.
