Editor’s Note – It is fast becoming clear that a dependent society is a compliant society – one that votes for the politician who is sure to keep those checks and EBT Cards coming. Now in LA alone, a whopping $650 Million in 2013 alone – for illegals. Its become a job, a career, a voting bloc. Last June the Daily Caller revealed this about what it means to be poor in America:
Looking for a good paying job? Well, look no further.
No, really, stop looking. In 35 states, welfare benefits pay more than a minimum wage job, according to a new study by the libertarian Cato Institute, and in 13 states welfare pays more than $15 per hour.
“One of the single best ways to climb out of poverty is taking a job, but as long as welfare provides a better standard of living than an entry-level job, recipients will continue to choose it over work,” said Michael Tanner, senior policy analyst and co-author of the study.
On top of this, in America, poor is a major step up from the older definitions of poor, especially when we look outside the USA. It is especially detrimental to all of us when our borders are so porous and visa jumpers are so rarely accounted for. What is poor? Take a look:
Americans who live in households whose income is below the federal “poverty” level typically have cell phones (as well as landline phones), computers, televisions, video recorders, air conditioning, refrigerators, gas or electric stoves, and washers and dryers and microwaves, according to a newly released report from the Census Bureau.

Then there are the obesity levels we are seeing across the land, free food, no work…and then there are those Obama Phones – but again, imagine, just in LA alone, $650 million in one year. But so much for illegal aliens alone in one city – what are we creating?
Rewarding failure is when you have jumped past helping those who need temporary help, this is a career now for so many. Now its a career for illegal aliens as well!
LA promises to remain deep blue for generations it appears!
Undocumented LA County Parents On Pace To Receive $650M In Welfare Benefits
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A projected $650 million in welfare benefits will be distributed to illegal alien parents in 2013, county officials said Monday.
Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich announced the latest figures from the Department of Public Social Services, which showed more than $376 million in CalWORKs benefits and food stamps combined have been distributed through July to illegal alien parents for their native-born children.
Approximately $54 million in welfare payments are issued each month, consisting of nearly $20 million in CalWORKs and $34 million in food stamp issuances, according to the data.
An estimated 100,000 children of 60,000 undocumented parents receive aid in Los Angeles County, according to Antonovich, who said this year’s projections — up about $1 million from the nearly $53 million in total benefits issued in July 2012 — underscore the economic impact of the nation’s immigration debate.
“When you add the $550 million for public safety and nearly $500 million for healthcare, the total cost for illegal immigrants to county taxpayers exceeds $1.6 billion dollars a year,” Antonovich said in a statement. “These costs do not even include the hundreds of millions of dollars spent annually for education.”
