I'm sorry, I made a mistake, you're right. At any rate, you would still make a large amount more by being on welfare. For example, a person making 30k would make 60k after welfare benefits in Pennsylvania. Making nothing nets you 45k.

You're using old data. In 2015, the US spent 3.7 trillion on welfare and 35% of people were on some kind of welfare.

where are you getting that number? It's not real. In fact its easy to find that number as a 5 year expense quote. That would be over 90% of the federal budget (which is the vast majority of spending).... the highest number I can find claims 1 trillion for 2015.

Cool, I didn't know that. For technicality's sake, yes the image is incorrect, but this does happen in other first-world countries, so the message it holds is important. If you want to get more technical, the US gives single refugees 1800 in a lump payment, so it's possible the creator mistook that for a monthly payment. We can also look at it mathematically, where a Muslim refugee likely does not speak English and will end up on welfare as he cannot find a job. 3.7 trillion dollars went to welfare in 2015. 35% of Americans are on welfare. This means the average monthly welfare payment is $2752. This isn't even counting the fact that employed people on welfare get less than the unemployed, meaning that a Muslim refugee likely makes over 3k in welfare per month since only 4.9 percent of Americans are unemployed. So in the US, if you do it mathematically, a Muslim refugee will likely make double what that image showed.

1800 is the allotment for the refugee to the service that assists them finding housing. approx 1000 is given to the refugee while the rest goes to the service. 3.7 is the total spent by the feds over 5 years from 2009 through 2013. The US (all levels of government) spends a total 927 billion (2011) on welfare. Assuming all welfare is distributed evenly the average recipient gets $705 in total assistance of which half is medical coverage so they receive $350. But not all assistance is given evenly nor are the majority of U.S. refugees Muslim. Also veterans receiving VA benefits are likely applicable for many welfare programs as well.

Of course most veterans do no require any welfare assistance at all as they on average are more financially successful than no the non-veteran population. Veterans also receive additional benefits such as discounts at many private businesses and low rate mortgages without down payment.

A lot of these comps involve world events, too. I don't know about the cap, could you provide some reference? Also, after looking into it (since the british refugee payment is pretty much exactly in line with that image) a British vet can actually receive way less than the image shown depending on his disabilities, so even if the country is wrong, the numbers are solid and should be something that people should be mad about. www.gov.uk/government/news/war-pension-scheme-payments-increases-from-april-2015

Pretty sure it being in the US isn't implied anywhere. The dollar amount uses a US dollar sign, but that sign is used in Mexico, Australia, Argentina, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Pacific Island nations, and English-speaking Canada, so it may not be USD. It could also be converted into USD. Refugees are a bigger issue in Europe and Canada, so I'd say if anything, it's referencing Canada, but it could be a slew of other nations.

Dude that's a load of shit and you know it... the man in the picture is a us navy veteran (the caps are very distinctive). Also the rest of the comp is about the U.S. so it's unlikely this one picture is not.

I'm just saying with how poorly vets are treated in the US and well refugees are treated in Europe, that image isn't much of a stretch.

While I completely agree that the US does not treat veterans nearly well enough the image is obviously implying that the US pays refugees more than veterans which is straight false.
