The real truth of the matter is you can only say that "half of Americans" are on government assistance if you include things like Medicare and Social Security, programs that both require people to pay into and programs that are very popular on both sides of the aisle. With 44 million and 55 million people in each, that is the only way you can make such a bullshit claim. Mark Sanford did so last fall and Fact Checkers had a field day with this lie.
The real numbers are this. When you look at people that are really "taking" without putting their fair share back into it.
47.7 million Americans were receiving on average $134.29 per month in food assistance in 2012.
That's the real number, you lying sacks of crap. Almost 48 out of 314 million. That's not half or anywhere close to half. Even in red states like Mississippi that have the highest number of people receiving aid, it still only gets as bad as 1 in 5. And at the end of the day, that's still less than $150 bucks a month to spend on food.
And there you have it. Some people would lie and say that half the country is "takers", but in order to even come close to that you'd have to include programs that everyone on here pays into and many love. Sorry, but someone on Social Security or someone getting a Federal Loan is not a "taker" or a parasite. You're full of it and you know it, but I'm glad you attempted the same thing that Mitt and Sanford tried and failed to pull off.
Why are you not counting social security and medicare/cade? Both are forms of government assistance. Both put out individual benefits in excess of what they take from an individual. Maybe you should look up cherry picking and spinning of stats because you accuse us of doing it then actually do it. Does this mean you dont understand the terms? Or as usual for liberals you just like the conjured images words are supposed to invoke and use them incorrectly as part of a standard statement?
By the way how miserable must your life suck to do a drunken rant about politics at 3 in the morning on a saturday? Shouldnt you be trying to build up immunity to STDs with one of your underage students at that time?
