    I bet if you actually interviewed the welfare queens who live in red states, you would find that they are invariably democrats. Correlation does not imply causation.

    We don’t want people in red states to be on welfare either.

    Actually blue states are welfare states, which is why welfare minded people move their. The problem however is that these blue states want welfare for votes and have used it to break up the black family and use it to keep people enslaved to welfare with no way to leave. If you try to work a minimum wage job, your welfare is cutoff, where you invest a lot of your time for not much benefit or a loss of benefit if you have to pay for childcare. I have no problem with a hand up for people in need, but governments often turn it into hand outs for votes where if they allowed you to work and become financially independent, you would leave the Democrat Party plantation for the Republican Party that supports those financially independent.

    Why?  Because we want able bodied Americans to work so we do NOT have to continue to carry them.  The more Americans, who work, means the government (or American tax payer), the less we pay for dead beat idiots.

    Only the foolish rank and file republicans are actually against welfare. Once they get up in the hierarchy, they realize how much they need it - personally.  Take Hannity for instance. He's got $80 M in subsidized housing. Do you think he REALLY wants an end to housing assistance? He'll say what his boss tells him to say: but at the end of the day, he needs that government check.

    The answer, from what I have heard, many people abuse welfare. Some are able to work but make more on welfare and too lazy to work, some use it to buy drugs and it is used for many reasons that It should not be used for. We need people that can keep check on everyone that receives welfare. People that abuse welfare make it hard on the ones that really need it. It always works that way, the bad people ruin helpful things for the people who are honest and need it.

    Tc- your claim is a state by state claim. Texas is not a welfare state. Neither is New York.

    Both states pay in WAY more money than they take out.

    It is disingenuous to take a welfare state like Kentucky and make a blanket claim that all republican leaning states are welfare states because Kentucky (for example) takes in more government cheese than it pays in.

    Republicans LIE to themselves that liberals are the ones on welfare.  ==  You are correct --  

    red states are the welfare states and blue states provide the tax money so that they can collect welfare.
