Total number of Americans on welfare-4.3 million. How are we arriving at the idea that 1/2 in the US are freeloaders?
Add in social security/Medicare recipients? Nope. We earned those benefits
Foodstamps with 46.7 million recipients? It's not considered welfare. An examination of the roles reveals most recipients are working families. Not even everyone on welfare gets foodstamps (mentally ill, developmentally disabled, traumatic brain injured living in supported living environments)
Tell us, proponents of the idea that half of us are leaching off the govt., where are they??
