SS is a welfare program that has some tuning towards individuals

Some of those states, Connecticut and NJ, aren't going to produce much economically. A very good percentage of residents don't work in those states. They travel to and work in New York.

I consider it welfare. Anyways. What I meant was what percentage goes to people who for whatever reason can't take care of themselves.

West Virginia is more than 90% white and according to your map it gets more handouts than every other state.
So much for your race baiting post.

Probably very little. Between SSDI and SSI it's mostly all fraud.

Here is why WV gets handouts. Rednecks with no jobs and meth cooks.

DING DING DING! This is not a black or a white problem, it is a SOUTHERN problem. Instead of whining about black people, why do you come up with ideas to improve the economy of your state for ALL people. Like Texas has, like NC has, like Virginia has?

I've never been to West Virginia but have heard that it is very poor. My question is why are they? They did not secede in the Civil War so they did not receive the damage of the war or of reconstruction. They seem to have a lot of natural resources, well at least coal. Why are they such a poor state?

I know, but for arguments sake, what is the difference between welfare and other types of federal aid.

coal miners dont make any money. they were originally set up as the mining equivalent of share croppers, so the laborers never had a chance to make enough money to raise themselves out of that situation and education was obviously of little importance since you dont need a diploma to work in the mines. that sort of mentality is hard to break when it has been prevalent for generations.

Yeah, social security isn't welfare IMO. Anything you actually pay into really.

Southern states get plenty of retirees from other parts of the country who are trying to stretch their dollar- especially the coastal areas.

Mountains and stuff? Maybe their abundance of and reliance on coal has held back diversification of the state economy?
