How much of your taxes actually go toward supporting welfare/foodstamp scum?
Many people might be surprised to learn that the average contribution to the food stamp program is a little over 10 cents, or one thin dime, a day. Let's look at the numbers.

A married person with one child making $50,000 a year will pay exactly $3,820 in federal taxes. Of those, $2100 is allocated to Social Security, and $725 is distributed Medicare. This leaves a whopping $995 to be used to pay for programs administrated by the Federal government. That money is broken down below in its entirety:

They give it to the government, who are the biggest welfare whores of all time if you think about it. Don't know about YOUR country but in America the tax payers support all government officials, past and present, for the rest of their lives and people bitch about helping a family out who is experiencing hard times? Priorities are a bit messed up if you ask me.

Pretty much! My dad told me that many years ago he figured out how much of the GDP was welfare/food stamp recipients? Not exactly sure what the hell he was talking about honestly but he said he did it to show his co-workers that the people on welfare were NOT the ones taking all their tax money. This surprises me because my dad is ALL about money, social status, appearances, etc. Anyway, he said that doing all of the calculations he discovered that the people getting welfare assistance (including food, housing, cash, and medical) was 1/100th of 1 percent of the GDP. I am horrible at math so I just sat there and nodded in utter confusion but he said that it shows that the people on assistance aren't the ones who are taxing and draining the system, it is the government and corporations that do that and people should stop bitching about the people on welfare and start bitching about the people in the government.

You might want to take another look at europe.

First it was the "scum" now its the police that cleaned up the scum, something tells me they will use the military to deal with them, then someone else to deal with the military.


Go on with your dividing, it is after all some $200. a month food stamps and not 70 billion a month for war that is killing this country. I mean we are all smart enough to do the math and see its the 4250 doing it, not say the $240,000.00 a year lifeguard on tv right.

Definitely the woman getting $250 a month for her starving kids and not say, well the woman getting 150,000 a year to tell her no. Yeah, I definitely see where that adds up.


Sure glad you cleared that up for us you non evolving ape.

This article begins in deception. Social security and Medicare are 7.65% of your gross income. This figure does not include any federal or state withholding. A person making 50,000 a year will pay 3,825.00 into social security and Medicare. The employer is required to match that same amount. The federal tax would be an ADDITIONAL 3,249.00. Total the employee gets taken from them is $7,074. Article is BS.

Op,

There is something that you are not considering in your SNAP funding assessment, do not forget all the other federal monetary funds added to SNAP funding in addition to state and local tax contributions.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act included broad investments to alleviate the poverty made worse by economic crisis.
To fight hunger, the Act includes a $20 billion increase for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps, as well as funding for food banks and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC)

[link to www.whitehouse.gov]

Here is a clearer picture of how much money goes to various assistance programs that are funded by the taxpayer.

Re: How much of your taxes actually go toward supporting welfare/foodstamp scum?
Actually, you can read the 2013 budget right here.

[link to www.usgovernmentspending.com]

It's about 36 dimes a day. $1,322.70 per capita for 2013 is going to Welfare.

Not that I don't think anyone should get welfare and foodstamps. My problem is the balance.

How can we progress as a nation when we are already $17 Trillion in debt and spending $422 Billion on people who don't have a job and only $136 Billion on education? Seems like we're setting the future generations up to be on welfare as well. With less going to education and more going to welfare, education spending will continue to drop as welfare continues to rise as the future generations get out of school with a less than adequate education. The entire country is heading down, and you want to complain that someone doesn't like the idea that you get free food and money from people who work for it?

If you want to justify the benefits WE pay for, then do something to benefit the future generations of America. Don't try to justify it by fabricating the idea that it only costs 10 cents a day.

And to the one that said, "I'd give 2 dimes if it would stop a conservatard from whining", it isn't about Conservative and Liberal. It's about facts. I'm neither conservative nor liberal. I have two eyes, a brain, and an open mind. It doesn't take a mathematician to see that America is falling. It's almost obvious.

I've worked non-stop since I graduated High School and haven't tried to do anything to stop you or anyone else from getting benefits. But you get benefits for doing nothing and get on here complaining that some people don't agree with it?

How's this for a signature?

I hope you choke on a free corndog, you ungrateful little shit.

Re: How much of your taxes actually go toward supporting welfare/foodstamp scum?
Last month, the Senate Budget Committee reports that in fiscal year 2011, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average US household below the poverty line received $168 a day in government support. What’s the problem with that much support? Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000, which averages out to $137.13 a day. To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30 an hour for a 40-hour week, while the average job pays $25 an hour. And the person who works also has to pay taxes, which drops his pay to $21 an hour. It’s no wonder that welfare is now the biggest part of the budget, more than Social Security or defense. And why would anyone want to get off welfare when working pays $9 an hour less?

And the percentage used to be higher for the 'self-employed' -- at one time 15 %. Because the self-employed had to pay the employer portion, as well -- being their own employer.

I think more people may be in this situation now with the trend toward 'independent contracting' becoming more typical.

I have worked three jobs at times to support my family. Never took a dime even though I could have.

Quit your bitching, get to work so that you can start paying taxes for some freeloader to live on. Then you can start complaining too.

We will stop complaining when the person in front of us in the check out line, who is paying with the ebt card, is buying staples and on sale items. The person of course should look normal to poor, not be talking on an I phone 5 with expensive clothes, freshly done nails and hair, and be driving a car that is worth more than our homes.

When this happens, let us know and we will be nicer to the welfare people.
