An in-depth report published in the Daily Courier notes that about half of the fundamentalists in Colorado City receive food stamps, compared to five percent statewide, costing just over $3 million a year.
The report continues, noting that a mere five years ago there were no Colorado City children getting child care assistance, but last year the number stood at about 200 – which cost the state another $600,000. These benefits can reportedly be paid to care-providers who are related to the children, so sometimes one wife can get paid for taking care of another wife’s kids. In all, Colorado City gets back about eight dollars in benefits for every dollar the residents pay in state taxes, while for the rest of Mohave County, Arizona the ration is near one-to-one.
Fire and EMS services in the twin cities of C-City/Hildale, which were nearly non-existent until recent years, have received hundreds of thousands of dollars in state and federal grants. Some published reports put the number even higher, claiming that more than $1.8 million from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has flowed into the town to pave streets, upgrade fire equipment and build a water-storage tank. Hildale got $94,000 for its fire station. And the government-financed airport on the edge of Colorado City costing $2.8 million.
Allen said the group also collects government assistance for children with disabilities – disabilities she attributes to inbreeding in the FLDS community. She claims “in the state ofArizonaalone, they’re getting between 20 and 30 million dollars a year” and most of the members “are living off taxpayer money.” She interviewed former Attorney General Terry Goddard in her documentary. Goddard told her 80% of the FLDS members are on welfare and more than 4,000 of them have state medical insurance access.

the way i see it is we are all part of this world. who are they to tell us where we can live and work? borders are made by man to keep the power in the hand of the few. many will disagree with me on this, but if you know me, then you will know that i don't care if you like the way i see things or not. agree with me or not, it makes not a bit of difference to me. who are we to tell others they can not make a living? open the borders and give everyone a fair chance to make a living! i'm just sayin...
