How much more welfare and entitlements can the United States endure before it bankrupts the Nation ?


Some states have entitlements of more than 57% of the population. How can 2 or 3 people be on welfare while one person is working to support these? Is it ok for the welfare, relating to those who do not work, have more than those who work? Is it right for those on welfare to be better off and richer than those supporting the system? Is it right for those on welfare to have their heat and electricity paid for by tax-payers to sit in 80-90 degree apartments while those who are working to survive, to sit home, with their thermostats set below 60 because they can not afford the heating bill?

    How much money do you think is being held by that minuscule portion of the population compared to the TRILLIONS of dollars already committed to Social Security,Medicare,Medicaid and Obamacare?

    It is because I have put over 2000 hours researching welfare fraud and dishonesty. I comment on this because of this so called distribute the wealth. While I am the working poor, I see people on welfare, sucking the wealth out of those who work

    you are both statistically and morally correct in your assessment. the change needed is to tax everyone at the rate of 1% per consumption dollar. no deductions - no special adjustments. and provide a job to every welfare recipient - no exceptions
