Middle class = 40% but pay 90% of tax revenue.
Government spends this money as they see fit.
Detailed explanation of where the money goes:
www.cbpp.org/cms/ ...
Excerpt:
22%- Social Security ...which includes all cost of distributing it ( and if that cost is anything like what it cost to get ACA going and what other independent companys receive from government the cost of that could be phenomenal!)
21%- Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP
19%- defense
12%- Safety nets
7%- Benefits for Federal retirees and Veterans
6%- Interest on debt
3%- Transportation and Infrastructure
2%- Education
2%- Science and Medical research
1%- Non-security International (???)
5%- all other (???)
(???) read the article to find out*
The article doesn't mention how much waste is involved in each of the above or the administration costs percentages to implement it.

"Yeah...get everybody hooked on hand-outs.
But what happens when the hand-outs run out?
The hand-0uts come from 'tax dollars'[NOT THE GOVERNMENT]
When will the hand-0uts run out(???) Take a look @ our national debt & you tell me(???)
By 2035 there will only be 2 classes of people left in the USA...RICH & poor,
which is about the same time our economic system completely =folds=
To understand when , how, and why that is inevitably going to happen read

Last time I checked, it was a free country. That is, until Chairman Obama and the Demo-trash get done with it...

Well, we could always pimp out Pelosi in some Middle Eastern country, as she closely resembles a goat. Might not make US a lot of money, but some is better than none!

JOB OPENINGS REACH A FIVE-YEAR HIGH.....AP(12-11-13)......... WASHINGTON....U.S. employers advertised the most job openings in more than five years in October, and the number of people quitting, also reached a five-year high....The Labor Department said Tuesday, that job openings rose 1 percent to a seasonally adjusted 3.93 million. That is the the highest figure since May 2008, three months after the recession began....And the number of workers who quit rose 2.5 percent to 2.39 million, the most since October 2008. More workers quitting can signal a healthy job market, because most of those people either have a good job or are confident they can find one.....More hiring, job openings and resignations signal a more dynamic job market....Another positive sign in the report: Layoffs plunged 16 percent to 1.47 million, the lowest level on records dating back to 2001........

It's all part f the plan.
" We will take America without fireing a shot... We will bury you. We can't expect the American people to jump from capitalism to communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of socialism. Until they awaken one day to find they have communism. We do not have to invade the United States, we will destroy you from within."
- Nikita Kruschev
Hmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!! Maybe it is about time we started taking old Niki's words a little more seriously.

Effing clueless. Communism is a stronger political movement today than it has ever been. Fact ! The current state of the former Soviet Union is not the relevant point and has no bearing. The fact remains that Socialism is destroying the western world from within itself and that has been the plan since the end of WWII. Kruschev was talking about Socialism and Communism as a whole taking over, not necessarily the Soviets. His words seem to ring true. The Soviet Union was allowed to fail to create a feeling that Socialism and Communism are no longer a threat in order to have it's enemies let their guard down. Allowing Socialism to fail in one area in order to allow it to infiltrate the rest of the world is right inline with their end game ideology. Socialism needs the whole world brought under it's grasp, that is when the concept of Communism can truly be brought to fruition. What is typically called Communism is really just Socialism striving for the end result of Communism.
We are heading towards that direction.

Most informed thinkers already "get it". You probably never will. The Public school system worked it's magic on you.
