Why is liberal California the poverty capital of America?


#1

Op ed is on point


#2

California, with 12% of the American population, is home today to about one in three of the nation’s welfare recipients.

This is a leftist’s wet dream. Handouts are job security. They hand out just enough to keep their pets from biting them and their pets keep voting them in. It’s a never ending cycle.

55% of immigrant families in the state get some kind of means-tested benefits, compared with just 30% of natives.

See above…this also creates a shithole pull. Free money in a place that welcomes you to break the law and protects you when you get caught. Americans don’t get that luxury.

When California state and local governments spent nearly $958 billion from 1992 through 2015 on public welfare programs, including cash-assistance payments, vendor payments and “other public welfare,” according to the Census Bureau. California, with 12% of the American population, is home today to about one in three of the nation’s welfare recipients. California now has become a sanctuary STATE to add to spending of taxpayer dollars . Liberal democrats love to spend and most are the very highest taxed States in the entire Country , when will these working taxpayer realize it is time to change the direction fast ?

The law of supply and demand doesn’t magically stop at the border…

Orange County California homeless.

The workers of CA have realized it. The problem is that those who vote for a living have overwhelmed those who work for a living. The legislators in Sacramento are utterly disconnected from taxpayers, and see them only as a necessary evil while they pander to every sort of class and identity politics. It will only get worse- that’s why we left.

I used to ride that trail often (SART) until it became too smelly and dangerous to ride. That line of tents and trash runs for roughly two miles along the trail.


#8

I assume they have very little numbers when it comes to workers but wouldn’t it be time to vote to replace these nitwits ? Perhaps the very reason they are so fond of illegals and importing refugees from shithole Countries . All that is needed is a bag of free shit every month . :rage:

Well said. Well said. I jsut need to find the courage and strength to leave my extended family behind now.

Maybe Govnor Moonbeam should spend some time in this third world shanty town and get off his socialist high horse.
