Default Welfare stats

Some time ago LA county supervisor Michael Antonovich got loud about how the social services burden for LA County was sinking the ship. I looked up the county's fiscal pie chart (maybe a year ago) and found that the social services slice was indeed inordinately large.

However, as a part of my curiosity about how brown supremacists have been tossing out half truth propaganda about previous waves of immigrants (nativism!!!, xenophobia!!!! and anglosajon prejudice!!!!!!!!!!), I have been looking at the concept of political machines (such as Tammany Hall and others, all with apparent Democrat connections) and the trading of social services and government jobs for votes over the last couple of days and got to poking around in welfare issues as a part of it.

Something astounding to me:

We have all heard that California, with 12% of the US population, has 33% of the national welfare burden. However, I further discovered today that LA county, with 26% of the California population, has 39% of California welfare cases.

Wow.

For those who are preoccupied with race with whatever axe there is to grind, I haven't seen California figures, but nationally it seems to me that the mix is something approximately (rounded up and down a couple of points for convenience) 33% each white, black, and Hispanic. No word as to illegality of presence or such yet, and that figure might be hidden or skewed either way depending on agenda.
