You don't know who most people on welfare voted. You don't know what percentage of those people voted.
Ok, that's TANF. There are 82 other means tested welfare programs.
The total cost is over $1 trillion per year.

This says it all:

Republican-Heavy Counties Eat Up Most Food-Stamp Growth - Businessweek

The whole liberals want handouts and conservatives are hardworking BS is just that. It is a lie and liberals know it. Funny how right-wingers want proof when it contradicts them, but when it's something they agree with or want to believe, facts are not a factor.
First, I wasn't responding to any of those "right-wingers" as you call them. What anyone else says has no bearing on what you say.

Second, I thought I was going to have an adult conversation on the subject so I asked for some clarity.

With a name like "Facts Please" I thought you wanted to discuss real facts. I guess your name is just an oxymoron.

If you just want to throw out insulting name calling generalities with NO facts, and aren't willing to clarify your opinions, you are just wasting my time
