From Rasmussen comes the stark reality about government dependence:
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 64% of American Adults think there are too many Americans dependent on the government for financial aid. Only eight percent (8%) believe not enough Americans are dependent on this aid, while 17% feel the level of dependency is about right.
It is past time to pare back taxpayer-funded benefits. We must help those who can’t help themselves — the poor, the disabled for example — but stop subsidizing the middle class by continued expansion of eligibility for myriad public benefits.
