    What does that even mean? It makes no sense.

    Of course, that would mean his comment was being kept at your level.

    Where do you think the other 1% comes from?

    And could you provide some verifiable evidence for this claim?

    nah they just paid a ton of the money used to build them. those who live off the public dole-ie the people obama is pandering to-they didn't do much of anything to get those roads built. they sure didn't provide jobs that led to taxes that helped build that stuff either

    You seem to have left out your verifiable evidence for your 99% claim.

    Where is it?

    You are laboring under the false belief that a person who may be on the public dole will ALWAYS be on the public dole and never pay any taxes to the government.

    Can you present any verifiable evidence of the number of people in this category?

    You labor under the delusion that welfare has not become intergenerational in many cases

    Have any examples? I thought welfare had a limit like a 2 year one at this point.

    I am not the one who made up the fact. You did.

    You own it.

    You are responsible for it.

    It is up to you to prove it.

    Or be known as somebody who simply makes it up as they go along.

    So prove your 99% statement.
