We now have over half of the country dependent on the federal government for some sort of subsidy or handout.
Your insistence of espousing an opinion when you are so uneducated about the matter is fascinating. It must be a truck driver thing.
Sure, all you have to is include ANYONE receiving money from the government as being "dependent on the federal government for some sort of subsidy or handout.<quoted text>
165 Million Americans Are Dependents of the State: Is Tyranny Next?
By Bill Wilson
Is America descending into a dependency state, where the majority uses its voting power to demand government services from taxpayers?
New research from Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee Jeff Sessions (R-AL) reveals that this reality may already be here, with more than 107 million Americans on some form of means-tested government welfare.
Add to that 46 million seniors collecting Medicare (subtracting out about 10 million on Supplemental Security Income, Medicaid, and other senior-eligible programs already included in Sessions’ means-tested chart) and 22 million government employees at the federal, state, and local level — and suddenly, over 165 million people, a clear majority of the 308 million Americans counted by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2010, are at least partially dependents of the state.
Really sucks when truck drivers know more than you do, doesn't it?
"Government employees" include the military. To your way of thinking, Ray, are their salaries a handout?
