21. Even if the myth were true (welfare spending per household more than income), does that mean

the problem is the welfare spending? Or is the problem the income of the majority of Americans, because of the Great Divide in income in America now?

Or would it also be a natural occurrence of the Repubican-caused Great Recession? Income per household took a nosedive, of course, as companies instituted pay cuts or salary freezes, and millions were laid off....at the same time throwing many of those people into the system to seek food stamps or other assistance.
