The Welfare Queen...

February 12, 2013

As the saying goes, facts matter.

Check this story:

Since 2008, free cell phone expense shot up, from $819 million to $2.2 billion. Now, it seems that millions of those new users were ineligible.

Or this one:

A woman in Brunswick Ga reports a stolen purse. The purse is valued at $400 and it contained $800 in cash, plus the woman's food stamp card.

Liberals say the "welfare queen" is a myth. But the facts disagree. To many, the social safety net is a hammock and a large segment of our society are simply takers.

You can lie about this, for your own self-serving purposes or just ignore it, for reasons of ideology. But the facts speak for themselves.
