So capitalists receive 'profit', welfare people receive 'benefit'.Dodge, fish, dodge, fish, dodge, fish, and refuse to admit that your ponzi scheme comment was wrong.
That's what you're all about in here Sofa King Cool.
Dodge, fish, dodge, fish, dodge, fish.
You'd best get back to your sofa because you're taking a "drubbing" in here.
But then again SKC, all you're doing in here is trolling. It's OK SKC, you can be an adult and admit that you're trolling. You know it, and we know it. The funny thing is that you're only fooling yourself with what you do and post in here.
BTW BeHereNow, the "wealthy" you mention usually earn less than 10% in profit from the goods and services they sell. This includes the money they receive from welfare/public assistance business transactions. These business profits generally run at ~3-7% for every dollar they invest in providing the goods and services that support the economy.
Those that collect welfare/public assistance, on the other hand, receive the full benefit of the money we hand out to them less taxes (if applicable). These taxes average 7-12% depending on where the transaction takes place.
This, imo, is the big difference between the "capitalists" and the welfare/public assistance funded consumers that they profit from.
Capitalists receive no benefit from the welfare dollars they receive? Of course they do, double dippers.
Welfare dollars spent on 'improvements', are not profit, but they are benefits.
Same for welfare dollars spent on payroll, a benefit to the owner.
For grocery stores the amount of food stamps dollars received exceed the profit the owner makes. Surely that represents not only profit, but benefit as well.
The single largest social service expenditure is medical, medicaid, medicare, and oother assorted programs.
Half of all b abvies born in teh USA are paid for by welfare. Alaska is 52%. Medicaid pays not only for the delivery, but the prenatal care as well.
Hospitals get the majority of their money from government payments.
And then there is the issue of low wages being subsidized by the government, in the form of social services.
Walmart is notorious for not providing health benefits, telling their employees,'Go to social services.'
Small businesses are able to get emmployees to come to work, because the low wages are subsidized. No food stamps and no medical assistance, no workers.
Let me be clear, I think the whole social service system is so broken, it needs to be trashed.
Put thinks on autopilot for 12 months, then stop all benefits cold turkey for 12 months, then restructure, start over. Two years to reprogram. Even in polotics that should be enough time.
The liberals will scream bloody murder, but a lot of businesses will have to close there doors as well. Republicans will not be well pleased either.
Why is it that Obama is known as the welfare president, yet the elimination of resources tests disappeared during Bush?
Liberals want obama to be the welfare president, and so do the Republicans, even though Bush was president when the floodgates opened.
If either one were concerned with the truth, Bush would be the welfare president, and Obama would be the Johnny come lately, but that doesn't fit anyone's agenda.
