No, not at all.

Again, just pointing out that while it may seem crazy that 40% of those in PR are on welfare, that's actually less than the percentage of blacks that use welfare here in the states.

Never said anything about monetary value. I don't even care.

I was just making a statement of fact. That's all. An equally shocking stat, apparently.
