For some reason, I was listening to one of the local news networks the other night. They were discussing welfare payments and the work requirement that some states are proposing. Governor Dayton was speaking and I thought I heard him say that any change in the welfare program would have disastrous effects on the poor and that there were hundreds of millions of people in this country that were on welfare.

Hundreds of millions????? There are only approximately 300 million people in the US. Hundreds would mean that there are at least 200 million people on welfare. I think someone needs to do a fact check on this "statistic."
