Posted by hslu in Economics, jobs, Obamacare.

Yes, you guested it, America is  a  country of freebies.

Shall we count them?

1.  50 million Americans on Medicare. That number is to go up as more boomers retire in the next 15 years.

2.  65 million Americans on Medicaid. Yes, more than the number on Medicare now.

3.  9 million Americans on VA Program.

4.  47  million Americans on food stamps.

5.  23 million Americans on some forms of unemployment benefits.

6.  8.8 million Americans on disability.

7.  50 million Americans on some forms of social security benefits.

8.  109.6 million Americans received some forms of  benefits from some forms of “means-tested ” programs which are funded by Uncle Sam.

9.  Untold millions Americans received energy credits whether they needed them or not: cars, windows, water heaters, EVs, solar panels on roofs or any kind of energy saving measures.

10.  Untold millions Americans received federal, state or local assistance to get educated after work or whle on unemployment line.

11. Untold million Americans receive free lunches, child tax credit and earned income tax credit.

12. Untold million Americans received mortgage interest deductions and assistance on selling their primary residences.

Wow! Unbelievable!

Wait, there are some percentages of 11 to 13 million illegal immigrants, your guess is as good as government’s, who are receiving free education, free city and county services, free lunches and free health care services.

Last but not the least, thousands or millions of silicon valley employees are getting free food at work and free transportation to and from work.

Amazing! Where do America get all this money from to pay for these freebies?
