Can it be stretched to say that Republicans are more likely to be on welfare than Democrats? Then why do they hate on welfare so much?

Makes me think of video games when the worst player on the team is most likely to talk crap to his teammates about their performance.
You simply don't understand reality.

The biggest welfare counties in the South are BLUE voting counties.


Let's look at welfare by demographic...

Race: Democrats dominate the races most likely to be on welfare.

Education: Democrats dominate high school drop out vote.

Family status: Democrats dominate the single mother vote.

Income: Democrats dominate the poverty vote.


You admitted to this board that you don't have a basic understanding of how the world works around you.

Democrats dominate all of the key demographics of welfare recipients, because those on welfare are more likely to vote Democrat.

The same, tired liberal con. The presumptive conclusion from the above statement is this:

"Most people on welfare are republicans".

Of course, this is completely false. Individuals who recieve welfare ARE MOSTLY DEMOCRAT. States recieve federal funds for roads, parks, military bases, dams, ect, which are a result mostly of geographic locations.


Here is the truth: THE MAJORITY OF INDIVIDUALS WHO RECIEVE WELFARE ARE DEMOCRATS.

81% of people receiving public housing benefits vote Democratic

From your own link:

In addition, the southern red states in the initial map of federal aid recipients are much more likely to have higher poverty rates. The impoverished, those who are more likely to need federal aid in a state, tend to vote Democratic according to Pew Research.

Factories left and went to Mexico and China. Hillary wants to put coal miners out of business.

Funny, how every few months you people bring this up......you really need to get a new site along with some education! All you are doing is pointing out how you know nothing about "welfare state." Ask your boss who grows their food and where do most ranchers and farmers live. Along, with how farmers are forced to grow a certain amount of food for welfare recipients.
