No, I called it welfare because that is how it is broken down here:
Welfare spending 2013: $2.8 billion
You just posted a link that verified what the original story correctly claim ,but now you want to dispute your own damn links with the Right wing expanded definition of the loaded "welfare".
Approximately 3500 families(not individual children) receive the whopping $192 / month for a family of at least 3 with an income under $30k per year. You pretty much verified the original article with your link of 19K total Welfare recipients for 2008.
I knew idiots would hijack the thread with their usual ignorance/bitterness. Some expanding Social Security/Medicare as "Welfare". Go tell your Parents & Grandparents to get off 'welfare' & that would be a start instead of ranting on a forum.
I am sure this 900k(SNAP) numbers are mostly children(total members of a Household) as well & certainly not individual applicants . Using individual children to pad your negative stats. Right wingers love those children when they are fetuses , but after they are born ...........'leeches'.
Both the Articles linked & yours specifically verifies what the OP original article states. Roughly 3500 HOUSEHOLDS are on the welfare(TANF) program Mr. stat padder.
Personally though I don't waste as much time obssessing over/villainizing poor families & hope they benefit as much as they can considering other waste.
Instead of whining helplessly on message boards maybe you guys can do something constructively to stop it like voting for Reagan or Bush or generic GOP. But I forgot they did nothing either , but play on your stereotypes/prejudices against certain Social programs to get your votes.
Personally I am enetertained when Right Wingers get upset about petty stuff they can do nothing about. You guys are so cute when you're angry.
