This "hundreds of millions" is a manufactured number. (No, manufactured implies a plan and a process. An imagined number.)

Readers should be sure to read the "detailed look" link above, where legislators got their ideas about welfare use from watching TV.

The trouble when discussing issues like this is that one said says "welfare cheat!" and the other side tries to counter with studies and numbers. Guess which one makes for a much better campaign slogan, blog topic, or talk radio rant.

The MPR analysis is superb, but is it enough to counter the "welfare cheats!" slogan? Where is our sound bite so we can oppose that?
