The problem with welfare.


Our country is in debt, huge debt.

But, the problem is simple, we spend too much money on welfare.

If you simply look at spending, it would seem that welfare is not that big a slice of the pie.

But, once you begin to actually look at where the money goes, is coming from, you find welfare is funded under the Farm Bill, Social Security, Medicare, Welfare (ironic), Education, and other programs.

I think only the CIA has more hidden money spent than does welfare, OK, that was an exaggeration.

Welfare makes up a third of the budget.

Cut, welfare in half, and the budget is almost balanced without touching any other program.

And unfortunately, the solution is scary.

What would you do?
