    I never disputed it. It's just really obvious what the tactic is here, including a bunch of stuff that even working people and the elderly get.

    Who cares who the source is? It's data from the Census, not from Fox News.

    Census data....facts are in there. Weigh in on the data and not the link in the OP.

    Maybe. No idea. I have seen young healthy people who would rather collect welfare and TracPhones from the government, and live in Section 8 housing, than work.

    Fox's point is not hard to understand. Reminds me of Romney.

    "You can't in the long run have a society in which you have to rely on a smaller and smaller group of wealth producers who have to support more and more people who are not contributing to that wealth," Tanner said.

    I see the lefties are in a tizzy because the truth hurts, so they attack the messenger.

    I think its bad that so many rely on the g. I think people should be more self reliant. Fox points out the problem. Libs ignore the issue, attack fox.

    I despise libs

    That is exactly what Fox wants the base to beleieve. Of course the Fauxites are looking for confirmation of their prejudices, so there you go. I guess I should stop and think a minute though. I beleive the last time I read it there is about 310 million Americans. If so that would mean there are 110 million Americans on Welfare. Is that true?

    Stop. Talking. About. Fox.

    Show me the Census data and where Fox manipulated it.
