Working suckers

86M Full-Time Private-Sector Workers Sustain 148M Benefit Takers

There are 1.7 Americans receiving government transfers for every full-time worker. Granted that some people receiving such transfers are also working full time, we are still left with the fact that more people receive means tested benefits than are working full time.

This cannot continue, and as economist Herbert Stein pointed out, "When something can't go on forever, it won't."

And this won't.
