Half Of U.S. Homes Are On The Government Dole

From The Wall Street Journal:
49.1%: Percent of the population that lives in a household where at least one member received some type of government benefit in the first quarter of 2011.
Cutting government spending is no easy task, and it’s made more complicated by recent Census Bureau data showing that nearly half of the people in the U.S. live in a household that receives at least one government benefit, and many likely received more than one.
This is the crux of the problem.Half of this country is living off the other half and borrowing from their children's and children's children's future to pay for it.Until half this nation is willing to vote itself a pay cut,we will be stuck with Big Government.

Benjamin Franklin said it best:

"When the people find that they can vote themselves money,that will herald the end of the republic."
