"The main reason California has such a high percentage of the nation's welfare cases is because it is one of the few states that continue to provide welfare checks for children once their parents are no longer eligible.

About three-quarters of California's welfare recipients are children age 18 and younger. Just three other states — Indiana, Oregon and Rhode Island — provide assistance checks to minors after their parents no longer qualify for welfare.

Damn them for taking care of the children.

Just waiting for someone to repost this, claiming it's a true representation of Californian welfare recipients:

Even more reason to hope for California to slide off into the Pacific.

But then Arizona and Nevada would become the new California.

Well this has turned into a "rejoice because we can bash CA with this data".
No concern that 1/3 of all US welfare recipients are living in that one state ?

What if CA just stopped all welfare when the parents didn't qualify like the other states ?
CA has to do something..it cannot continue to carry that debt and the numbers are growing, not shrinking.

There's lots of cuts going on but the welfare in CA is just too attractive even with the cuts.

Nation's largest welfare state makes deep cuts (http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/n/a/2011/12/28/state/n103700S74.DTL&type=politics - broken link)
Advocates of welfare reform in California often cite one, eye-popping statistic as they have pressed for cuts and changes to the program in recent years: The state has one-eighth of the nation's population but one-third of all welfare recipients.
..
The main reason California has such a high percentage of the nation's welfare cases is because it is one of the few states that continue to provide welfare checks for children once their parents are no longer eligible.
About three-quarters of California's welfare recipients are children age 18 and younger.
..
California's relatively high cost of living and its large number of low-wage jobs make it difficult for residents to make ends meet, she said. By 2009, California saw 1.3 million apply for state assistance, and the number has continued to climb.
And, what percentage of them are illegal aliens?

HT, California has been a progressive liberal heaven and home base for illegals and welfare cheats for how long?

With the election of Gov Moonbeam it should have been apparent that California would not do anything to discourage, develop programs or revise the laws to remove people from their welfare rolls.

It is the state that lets this welfare travesty continue so how can one not slam the state?
