The Work versus Welfare Trade-Off: 2013 | Cato Institute

A disappointing but predictable result. It’s clear that welfare is out of control in this country. The Cato Institute has merely (by merely, I don’t mean to discount the Institute’s work) proved what conservatives already knew. 

“The current welfare system provides such a high level of benefits that it acts as a disincentive for work. Welfare currently pays more than a minimum-wage job in 35 states, even after accounting for the Earned Income Tax Credit, and in 13 states it pays more than $15 per hour.”
