Having trouble just making ends meet because of taxes that go to people who don’t work?
New Jersey state officials are facing backlash after offering a pilot amnesty program for people who admit to improperly receiving Medicaid benefits.
This comes after 26 Lakewood, New Jersey residents were arrested on charges of benefits fraud over the summer.
Authorities planned an event to encourage people who purposely or inadvertently collected unwarranted Medicaid benefits to come clean.
Instead, more than 30 people showed up to protest the event, saying they were sick of hearing about public assistance scams.

2. Welfare is more than a newly college educated teacher in eleven states makes
3. Outdoes the salary of a computer programmer in three states!
4. The highest welfare payouts are over $20 an hour! (Hawaii, with payments equaling $29.13 per hour, DC at $24.43 per hour, Massachusetts at $24.30 , Connecticut at $21.33, New York at $21.01 per hour, New Jersey at $20.89 per hour, Rhode Island at $20.83 per hour and Vermont at $20.36 per hour)
