RCP: 'Suicidal Government' - Big Government On The Brink

Sample from the RCP piece:

...Few Americans realize the extent of their dependency. The Census Bureau reports that in 2009 almost half (46.2 percent) of the 300 million Americans received at least one federal benefit: 46.5 million, Social Security; 42.6 million, Medicare; 42.4 million, Medicaid; 36.1 million, food stamps; 3.2 million, veterans' benefits; 12.4 million, housing subsidies. The Census list doesn't include tax breaks. Counting those, perhaps three-quarters or more of Americans receive some sizable government benefit. For example, about 22 percent of taxpayers benefit from the home mortgage interest deduction and 43 percent from the preferential treatment of employer-provided health insurance, says the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center...

By my SWAG, that makes 100 million plus voters who will do anything to stay on the government nipple, including special processing for the irreconcilables of the Old Republic.

But just keep voting and believing in fairy tales.

That'll show them.

And you'll also retain the moral high ground.

There's that, as well.

BTW, what size boots do you wear?

Altogether Soviet farmers used less than 5 percent of the land for private farming, they produced a third of the agricultural produce.
Similar to Vietnam 1975-1985 until the Communists gave up on their brillant plans......

Note to Real Clear Politics and Mr. Samuelson --- A mortgage interest deduction is not a handout. Or dependency on the system.

...Just had to clear that bit of murky confusion up. Geez...

Ayup. When Obongo loses control of the wheel, he'll try anything to get control back, and that means anyone and anything in his way is dead meat. I think it will get out of his and his enablers hands, they will overreach, and they'll never get it back again. I think this grand fuck-up will be on such a scale and so furious, that they won't even be able to reach back to history for solutions. Of course, they'll try all the bad ones.

...and sadder too is that the mortgage interest deduction is merely an illusion, as it is based on interest paid to banks, thus a subsidy to banks and an inducement to the ignorant to acquire an even bigger mortgage, because hey, you'll save even more!

No interest paid, no mortgage tax deduction. Yet the ignorant persist in the belief that it is a wonderful program for homeowners.
