I said several things, Undustrial, but I didn't say that people go on welfare because they can make SOOO much money.

Of course people don't decide to become poor since they make so much money on welfare. People become poor for many reasons. Many poor people are not on welfare.

I take issue with a writer and a study designed to tell us that we get a lot of value for our welfare dollar, so we shouldn't worry about when tax-free day is. Instead, we should have more studies to look at how people on welfare need more money, and presumably then, our tax-free day will come even later.

Then, this is spun into an article about how welfare payments actually generate more money for us than they cost us. Really? So our tax dollars, put into the hands of a welfare recipient, somehow become worth even more than the cost of welfare. The amount of information that has to be left out to arrive at that conclusion strains the boundaries of integrity.
