    “Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured. . . but not everyone must prove they are a citizen.”

    Now add this, “Many of those who refuse, or are unable, to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens.”
    — Ben Stein

    well it is the only kind of “job growth” that has happened while Obama has been president. That and disability. My wife is still working and I am still part time working for the government so to speak. Here it is in big round numbers so maybe you libs might understand. Full time works and makes 65,000 a year. Part time works and makes 35,000 a year. Tax bill when you add up Fed, State, Local, School, Obamacare, and so on. 35% so tell me how I am not supporting mommy welfare and her bastard kids.

    Another fun fact 13% of budget is welfare,
    Budget is about 24% of gdp, to make it easy that is about
    2.7% of GDP going to welfare. Big drain on the country right ?

    @Quipss

    fun fact we are in big dept, Obama has a negative when it comes to growing the GDP, so that 2.7% is borrowed money that we do not have.

    well by your numbers I am glad I can supply 3$ to the welfare system. That makes me feel so much better. That is still 3$ more than the welfare person. Obama has managed to what double or triple the welfare rolls in order to hide his real unemployment numbers.

    29,900,000 get SOME assistance. Only 1.7% of the 310 million rely on welfare for 50% of their assistance.

    $35.000 a year part time.
    Now I feel poor, I made less than that working full time and I live in the most expensive state in the union.
    Now that cancer made me retire I make do without handouts. Yes, at times I am actually hungry.
    .
    Might have some bearing on my lack of sympathy for rich whiners that only want more.
    Food, heat, and shelter. The rest is extra.

    As “Rock” points out, there’s no need to rely on facts, when folks like Rush, et al, even ’toonists, can make their own up on the fly, and their trolls will accept the “gospel according to Rove”.

    “Man does not wish to be dependent on others, its against his nature..children… a different story…”


    Yes it is a different story, and when you want to delve into that story, please begin by explaining how we are seeing 2 and 3 generations of families that are welfare recipients. I do agree with educating and training people to make them productive and hopefully to instill the sense of pride that comes from being self sufficient.

    Let’s look at your “take” and think about it.

    Too many on welfare? How many are on actual “welfare” and how do you define it?

    One definition is : “financial or other assistance to an individual or family from a city, state, or national government”

    So…. unemployment, food stamps, WIC, SS disability?

    Here is some reading, feel free to find your own.

    We need to take care of those that can not – for whatever reason – take care of themselves. One way is to tax everyone more. Another way is to “create jobs” for them in areas we need to fill (complete with the requisite training).

    So what exactly IS the “big Conservative Lie” that you are claiming?

    That 48% of households receiving government assistance is not only a lie but OK?

    That almost of third of the population dependent on the government for sustenance is a “lie” and ok?

    What?

    big round numbers so you the lib can understand. closer to the truth,but closer when the wife and I 1st got married and was working 5 jobs between us. full time 3250 part time 17250. Without any kids tax bill is still around 35%. or 17250.
