The mention of welfare evokes an image in ones mind. The exact image depends on ones political persuasion, ones news source, and ones vision of humanity. In my opinion, the cost to our government for that welfare, no matter what your image, is small potatoes compared to the welfare dollars being handed out, with no hope of return, to businesses: healthcare, farms, and energy, just to name a few categories; there are a lot more. Apparently, all it takes to get on those welfare rolls are a few well-placed lobbyists and more than a few dollars donated to various campaign funds. Although not as expensive as some, the worst of the worst is likely the corn ethanol industry. Recently, NPR had a commentary about it. http://www.npr.org/2010/12/21/132082560/ethanol-gets-a-boost-will-it-return-the-favor
