Once again<quoted text>
Out of that 47% that receive "entitlements", roughly half are military and vetererns. Around 12-13% are the elderly and disabled. That leaves in the neighborhood of 10%. I can personally guarantee you that not all of that 10% are moochers, nor just Democrats. Now out of that 4-6% that are truly moochers I think you will find that there never has been, or ever will be any type of system that these folks can't find a way to screw the system over. Just doesn't seem to be as many as one initially might think there is when you actually break down the numbers now does it?
Last August I found a break down of the country's "bills" and income. We had $172.4B in revenue and had $306B in bills. You can cut 75% of ALL the major entitlements, unemployment, food stamps, education grants, housing and urban developement etc....and we are still $80B+ short.....PER MONTH. 75%! Obviously coupled with 1st paragraph and this 2nd one....I think it's clear the 47% are not nearly as much of the problem as a lot of folk think.
You did not address the matter of WHY CAN'T THE 50 MILLION PEOPLE WHO RECEIVE ENTITLEMENTS pay one, little, measley, single dollar bill per month. Something at least to show they are paying a fair share (Obama's wording not mine and a dollar is not what I consider a fair share but since so much whining over it I will let it go).
This would be $50 million per month and $600 per year for only paying one, little, measley, single dollar bill....just one per month.
Again, quoting Obama "we all need to pay our fair share".
I don't give a rat's behind who is receiving it, they still are receiving it and need to be responsible enough to pay one, little, measley, single dollar bill per month.
This is all that is asked from them. I wish this is all I had to pay in taxes.
