    I think the facts speak for themselves.  34 percent of the welfare recipients in the United States live in California.  It only has 12 percent of the population. It pays out the maximum of all states in monthly cash benefits over $648 per family.  This happens even when the family is working. … story.html

    When you add in the fact that illegals get more benefits than American citizens, it's enough to make you crazy. "Illegal immigrants get $1,261 more welfare than American families, $5,692 vs. $4,431" … le/2590744

      CA also is #1  in GDP (Gross Domestic Products). It contributes over 14.10% of the nation's total. The #2 state is TX which comes in at 8.76%. Per the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. If CA were a nation it's economy ranking  #6 in the world!
