Under President Obama, the U.S. government is distributing a record amount of public assistance -- and itís much worse than previously imagined. The Obama administration is spending "more than the median national income" to provide each impoverished household with welfare, a public-interest watchdog group reported.

Here is a breakdown: the government spent enough on welfare last year to cut a check for nearly $60,000 for each impoverished household it provided with benefits.

The median income in the U.S. is around $50,000.

The official poverty line is an annual income of $23,021 for a family of four.

Why work? Why even graduate from High School? A financial Crisis is about to happen in the USA. A trillion a year to support the lazy non productive of society, Detroit is only the beginning. Has it helped the blacks? Maybe 20% of them. 9000 murders last year and they were blacks killing blacks.

They should use this money to create jobs and make laws that do not hurt people. Instead they are doing the opposite. I voted Romney for a reason!

Welfare is an entitlement that white leaders use to keep the black community down. They love it, works for us. Win-win, sort of. Except now it is bankrupting the country, and has backfired on us.
Hmmmm

Here we go, someone's gotta make it a black/white issue. White people are also on welfare.

That is so typical of what I expect from you people. Everybody owes you guys. God forbid you should get an education and a good paying job, to not live on handouts (which are "contributed" by others that took this route). I know you think it's cute and irritating to point these things out, but it alienates me toward your people. Are you people that lazy and jaded?

Actually from what I've seen of Wayne County, it is actually very scenic, they have the Erie Canal and a trail and all those communities along it, such nice places. While all we have in Phelps is the Canandaigua outlet which isn't nearly as fun as the canal.

And trailer parks, rednecks, toothless people - it's not a great county to live in. It's, well, backwoods and dirt poor.

There's no rednecks in the finger lakes or toothless people. And that's not their fault if they don't have any money.

I think it's the government's fault. Definately agree with you there.

The Government should supply them with NO SHOW and DO NOTHING jobs so they can collect a Federal paycheck
