hen you really think about it, itís a stunning fact. There are now more people in America receiving government healthcare benefits ó Medicare and Medicaid ó than there are full-time workers in the economy.

Medicaid and Medicare had a gross combined enrollment of 119,249,000 in 2011. At the same time, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics said that 112,556,000 people worked full-time in the United States in 2011, including 17,806,000 who worked for all levels of government and 94,750,000 who worked for the private sector.

So, where is the money going to come from to pay for all this? Better get a second or third job.
