Half of US Population Receiving Government Handouts

CNS News reports:

The 153,323,000 total benefit-takers at the end of 2012, said the Census Bureau, equaled 49.5 percent of the population. The 150,026,000 taking benefits other than veterans’ benefits equaled about 48.5 percent of the population.

Shouldn’t be too much longer now before total chaos erupts.

I predicted 2014 to be the year everything comes unglued.

There’s still time left for that prediction to come true.

Keep in mind those figures don’t count the people who make their living as a parasite on the productive class.  According to 2012 data, there are 4.3 million federal employees and 3.7 million full time state employees.  I’d wager that each one of those probably consumes the value of three welfare recipients.

Those numbers also don’t count state government pensioners who may not yet be collecting socialist security.
