(CNSNews.com) – Americans who were recipients of means-tested government benefits in 2011 outnumbered year-round full-time workers, according to data released this month by the Census Bureau. They also out-numbered the total population of the Philippines.
There were 108,592,000 people in the United States in the fourth quarter of 2011 who were recipients of one or more means-tested government benefit programs, the Census Bureau said in data released this week. Meanwhile, according to the Census Bureau, there were 101,716,000 people who worked full-time year round in 2011. That included both private-sector and government workers.
The next sentence is shocking but, in my opinion, not unexpected or unforeseen:
That means there were about 1.07 people getting some form of means-tested government benefit for every 1 person working full-time year round.
I have written, for some time, of the tipping point where the Parasites outnumber the Hosts.
Statistically, it appears, we are there.
