"The disturbing trend is that increasingly Americans are being paid by the federal government. More disturbing is the old saw, 'He who pays the piper calls the tune.' ... An all-time record high of 18.3 percent of total personal income in the United States came from a government check from Social Security, Medicare, food stamps, unemployment benefits and other programs in 2010. This is entirely separate from the amount of your taxes paid to employees of the federal government. And don’t forget state and local governments." (05/10/11)
