Welfare Nation

Government handouts make up ONE THIRD of America's salaries and wages

by David Gardner - March 9th, 2011 - London Mail

Government handouts now make up a record-breaking one third of the total amount of wages and salaries in the U.S., according to a bombshell new study. The payouts – including Social Security, Medicare and unemployment insurance – are placing an increasing burden on the state at a time it is trying to dig itself out from a mountain of debt.

And economists fear the toll on taxpayers will only increase further if quick action isn’t taken before the majority of baby boomers reach retirement age.

Social benefits make up 35 per cent of wages and salaries this year, up from 21 per cent in 2000 and 10 per cent in 1960...

For more than 40 years Democrats have increased the tax burden by wasting money and creating more and more undeserved giveaways. A classic example of the idiocy of this - the Jimmy Carter passed requirement that we pay social security to any immigrant who moves here after they turn 65. They have never paid into the system yet they get to draw benefits as if they did. This fueled a huge surge in the number of immigrants who worked to bring their parents to America as soon as they could, under the premise of reuniting a family. The only problem is the cost of their care was paid not by the immigrant but by the American taxpayer.

Add up a huge list of such unjustified nonsense passed year after year after year and we have a culture of welfare people who have never worked in their entire lives. They simply suck at the public trough to pass their days on earth, always at the courtesy of Americans who work to support them.
