    Re: For the First Time, Canadians Now Richer Than Americans. Thanks, Obama!

    This is indeed Obama's fault.

    Thanks to Barack Obama and four years of his failed economic policies, government dependency jumped 8.1 percent in the past year, with the most assistance going toward housing, health and welfare, and retirement.

    The federal government spent more taxpayer dollars than ever before in 2011 to subsidize Americans. The average individual who relies on Washington could receive benefits valued at $32,748, more than the nation’s average disposable personal income ($32,446).

    This is "income re-distribution" on the part of Barack Obama and the liberal Democrats in Congress at its very worse. Why should anyone work today when you can make as much money by not working as you do by working?

    At the same time, nearly half of the U.S. population (49.5 percent) does not pay any federal income taxes.

    In the next 25 years, more than 77 million baby boomers will retire. They will begin collecting checks from Social Security, drawing benefits from Medicare, and relying on Medicaid for long-term care.

    As of now, 70 percent of the federal government’s budget goes to individual assistance programs, up dramatically in just the past few years. However, research shows that private, community, and charitable aid helps individuals rise from their difficulties with better success than federal government handouts. Plus, local and private aid is often more effectively distributed.

    Dude, no. It is not all Obama's fault (note I am not saying that Obama is absolved of wrong doing. Obama is the status quo and has carried on the actions which have led us here).

    There's a necessary piece of information here that is becoming more obvious by the day. There is no difference between the Republicans and the Democrats. We MUST realize this if we wish to regain control of our Republic and return it to the Shining City on the Hill. Obama has merely continued to expand upon that which was set by precedent.

    Once again. Decades of Republocrat rule has led us to the precipice upon which we now stand. This must be understood.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Which part do you disagree with?

    Do you disagree with this statement?

    The federal government spent more taxpayer dollars than ever before in 2011 to subsidize Americans. The average individual who relies on Washington could receive benefits valued at $32,748, more than the nation’s average disposable personal income ($32,446).

    How about this statement.

    As of now, 70 percent of the federal government’s budget goes to individual assistance programs, up dramatically in just the past few years. However, research shows that private, community, and charitable aid helps individuals rise from their difficulties with better success than federal government handouts. Plus, local and private aid is often more effectively distributed.

    These are well-established facts, by the way!
