The Working Taxpayers are Being Crushed with a Heavy Burden to Carry and the Collapse is Coming Soon
The Number of Working Taxpayers is Shrinking Fast While the Number of Government Dependents is Growing Fast
The government statistics came out today concerning the number of working taxpayers versus the number of government dependents, and the numbers look bleak. On the day after the deadline for filing Federal Income Taxes, we discover from the government’s own numbers that we have 86 million people in the United States are working taxpayers. In a country of just over 300 million people, that is less than a third of the society. What is even more staggering is that 148 million people are government dependents. That figure is nearly half of the U.S. population. It doesn’t take a math genius to figure out that far fewer people are supporting a far larger number of people. In actuality, there is no such thing as government dependency. The government is funded by the taxpayers, so it is better to say that these 148 million people are on taxpayer dependency. Is it any wonder that the fiscal operating debt of the United States is $17.3 trillion? It grew from $10.6 trillion to $17.3 trillion under the 5 years of Barack Obama’s presidency. This doesn’t even include the debts that the unfunded liabilities of Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid have grown. These number over $100 trillion.
Is it any wonder that our taxes are staggeringly high? Is it any wonder that Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, as it is called, has raised health insurance premiums significantly. It is true that a lot of those who are on Social Security are either senior citizens or severely disabled people, but the skyrocketing growth of Social Security claims cannot be only those who are truly deserving of it. We constantly hear the rallying cry from the Obama Administration that we have turned the corner on the revering economy and that we are truly recovering now. At the same time, Barack Obama constantly runs around saying how we need to extend Federal Unemployment Insurance. Sorry Bam Bam, but you can’t have it both ways. We can’t be in a strong recovery if we need to extend unemployment benefits constantly, as we have done for the past few years. The welfare state in the United States has grown from being a safety net into being a hammock for parasites that want to live off of the working taxpayers. Our welfare programs are designed to be programs that maintain dependency for the purpose of acquiring Democrat votes. If you start working and earning over a certain threshold, the whole benefit goes away. As a result, people avoid trying to get work or improve their income. If the benefit were gradually reduced as earnings became more and more, a person could gradually work their way up and out of dependence. Yet, this does not work for the model that the Democrat Party has for their election strategies. The Democrat Party needs a consistent dependency class to depend on for votes.
Well, the time of reckoning is coming soon. We, the working taxpayers are struggling under a burden that is crushing us. Many of the taxes that we have to pay are not obvious. In addition to our actual taxes, we see rising prices in food, fuel, utilities, and just about everything. Much of this has to do with Obamacare. As businesses need to pay more for health insurance premiums, those costs get passed along to us. As the Federal government taxes utility companies more to “save the Earth,” we pay more for our utilities. As the government taxes farmers more to “save the Earth,” we pay more for food. While Barack Obama goes around selling “income equality,” we should be telling him to take less money from us and stop trying to blame others for our struggles. How long can this last? How much more of a debt burden can we put on future generations? There is a point at which the numbers will be too much and the burden will be too much. What then? Then it gets scary The leftists who got us to this point will have to crack down hard on our society to keep us from rising up. No wonder the Social Security office has been purchasing millions of shells of ammunition. Take a look at the Cloward and Piven Strategy. This is exactly what is happening.
