A new study conducted by the CATO Institute finds that New York welfare recipients are eligible for more in benefits than teachers earn. The study says that a New York mother of two is eligible for $38,004 in welfare benefits, which is more than the annual salary of a New York entry-level school teacher. But it’s not only New York. CATO also found that in many states welfare pays better than work. Hawaii had the highest wage-equivalent benefits for a mother and two children at $60,590.

We are his heirs, he our inheritance. Ladies and Gentlemen--the Horse!" - Ronald Duncan
