... directly, instead of filtering tax revenues through a massively inefficient government run welfare department, everyone below the poverty line would receive a check for $60,000 annually. But alas, spending on welfare is anticipated to rise by 80% within the next 10 years instead. Thats enough for $108,000 annually via direct check.
