1 in 3 on medicaid, foodstamps or some other government means (what ever that is)
if you include medicare, social security and unemployment it is about 1/2 of the population
these numbers are from 2010
“NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — More than one in three Americans lived in households that received Medicaid, food stamps or other means-based government assistance in mid-2010, according to a new report.
And when Social Security, Medicare and unemployment benefits are included, nearly half of the nation lived in a household that received a government check, according to the analysis of third-quarter 2010 Census data done by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, a libertarian-leaning think tank. That’s more than 148 million Americans.
I just posted this because things keep stacking up against getting obama out of the whitehouse
romney’s weakness sure doesn’t help
I think your approach to analyzing the situation is cockeyed and should be ignored ~ particularly by you.
The fear and desperation of dependency is real, it’s a plus for Obama and the dems this year. Though the GOP establishment is careful to ‘honor’ government’s parasitic children too.
Those who think the resentment of dependents is the same as the resentment of those who pay for it are ludicrous.
We may be past the tipping point for a return to America.
Unfortunately ground temperature is the only sure cure for these parasites...
They are NOT talking about every single member in the household receiving benefits.
Grandpa on SSI ~ after being run down by an illegal alien in 1985 ~ he counts, but the kids and grandkids, all of whom have jobs don't!
That's just the statistics ~ then there are people who simply do not believe in Obama Money. They know where the welfare comes from ~ and they're not inclined one way or the other to vote for any particular politician on account of their check.
