This is just the start of one of the most striking videos this year about government spending, entitlements, and the dependent population. Government Gone Wild has brought forth statistics that can’t be denied or mischaracterized by the politicians who have created them. A larger and larger percentage of our citizens pay nothing for the benefits they receive, and they become incentivized to stay poor and depend on our government for their needs.
- 41% of all births in our nation and 60% of all elderly care are paid for by government.
- 1 out of 3 U.S. households have a member receiving food stamps, subsidized housing, cash welfare, or medicaid.
The USDA is paying for marketing to encourage more people to become food stamp recipients. One state received a $5 million bonus for adding more people to their system. Hard-working American’s tax dollars are being spent on advertising to people who didn’t think they needed food stamps.
For every $1 in taxes that the lowest income Americans pay, they will receive an average of $10 in federal spending benefits..a ten-fold return.
Percentage of Americans paying ZERO federal income taxes during Presidents’ tenures:
- 19%: Ronald Reagan
- 25%: BillClinton
- 30%: George W Bush
- 47%: Barack Obama
144,000,000 Americans have “no skin in the game”–they pay no federal income taxes. Half of America’s citizens’ tax bills are being paid by the other half of America. At a certain point, when there are more parasites than the host can support, it leaves them behind or it dies. The momentum and direction of this country are leaning toward a majority populace that expects an ever-shrinking pool of taxpayers to support their every need. The momentum must be stopped.
