What % of America is Government Dependent????
About 40,000,000 Americans receive Food Stamps.
About 15,000,000 Americans receive Unemployment Checks.
About 22,000,000 Americans work directly for the Government.
About 57,000,000 Americans receive Social Security and/or Disability.
Millions of Americans contract directly for the Govenrment or work for private companies that are Government Contractors such as the military defense contractors.
Over half of health care dollars comes from government spend and over 10% of the workforce now works in health care.
IN THE GREAT DEPRESSION.....GOVERNMENT SPENT VERY LITTLE AND WAS A VERY SMALL PERCENTAGE OF THE ECONOMY.
TODAY....GOVERNMENT IS PRACTICALLY THE ECONOMY, ESPECIALLY FACTORING THE MULTIPLIER EFFECT OF THE ABOVE SPEND ON PRIVATE INDUSTRY.
How is the above sustainable with tax receipts to government evaporating at record rates, current obligations rising rapidly, and all against a backdrop of the biggest government deficit in history?
