The U.S. government has spent an astounding 3.7 trillion dollars on welfare programs over the past five years.
According to one calculation, the number of Americans on food stamps now exceeds the combined populations of "Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming."
It has been reported that 4 out of every 5 adults in the United States "struggle with joblessness, near-poverty or reliance on welfare for at least parts of their lives".
Americans also have the fattest poor population on the planet. They have phones, free housing, they have internet access, free health insurance, they have cars, and they can sell their EBT cards on Craig's List to spend money on other entertainment including drugs.
