According to the federal government, only 15% of Americans turn to it for help during the hard times it creates. Clearly this means Big Government’s work is not done:
More Americans rely on their families for assistance than the government, so federal officials have undertaken an effort to help people to apply for federal assistance.
“Given that only 15 percent of you turn to government assistance in tough times, we want to make sure you know about benefits that could help you,” USA.gov announced today. The ”government made easy’ website has created a “help for difficult financial times” page for people to learn more about the programs.
The site conveniently makes it much easier to help yourself to other people’s money than it is to find a job with Obama’s boot on the neck of the private sector.
Only in the world of bureaucrats could the 15% figure pass the laugh test, when Obama has that many on food stamps alone, and federal programs to redistribute wealth are beyond number. Once again we see that math is not our socialist rulers’ forte.
