CNS News - 86M Full-Time Private-Sector Workers Sustain 148M Benefit Takers
Buried deep on the website of the U.S. Census Bureau is a number every American citizen, and especially those entrusted with public office, should know. It is 86,429,000.And how does government fund such welfare? The same as always - tax working people and transfer the wealth.

Since taking office in 2009, President Barack Obama has formally proposed a total of 442 tax increases, according to an Americans for Tax Reform analysis of Obama administration budgets for fiscal years 2010 through 2015.

Obama has never claimed he wouldn't raise taxes, it is one thing he has been honest about - saying "some" new taxes would be necessary. But if he had his way you and I would be working probably 300 days a year to pay for this welfare state instead of "only" - "ONLY" about 110!
