… check out the reports that have emerged in recent days suggesting just how dependent Americans have become on government largesse.

Keep in mind the money to pay for it doesn’t come from the government; it comes from all of us, but especially the top 20% of incomes that pay 94% of the taxes and create virtually all of American jobs.

Here are just a few recent reports about the alarming growth in dependency:

…. 107 million Americans were receiving some kind of government welfare — not including Medicare or Social Security

…. last three months, more people have applied for Social Security disability payments than found jobs in the private sector …

…. 43% of all immigrants remain on welfare 20 years after arriving in the U.S. …

…. almost half of all Americans — 49.5% of us — pay no income taxes at all …

…. long-term debt now stands at $211 trillion, up $11 trillion in just one year
