Welfare states

Ten states where you don’t want to live: California, New York, Illinois, Maine, Hawaii, Ohio, Kentucky, Mississippi, Alabama, and New Mexico.

What do they have in common? Each of those states has more welfare recipients than employed citizens.

Last time I looked, these states were “blue” Obama states.
