*** I won't bother to correct your grammar. ***
What a magnanimous gesture from a misuser of ellipses.

This calls for real soul-searching by the left wing fringe
As I posted earlier, it is ABSOLUTELY ACCURATE that the top 25 percent of taxpayers pay 87 percent of all income taxes. Now the CBO is reporting that the bottom 40 percent COLLECT an average $18,950 in what the CBO termed "government transfers."
So not only are the successful paying the OVERWHELMING BULK of the taxes but THEY ARE PROVIDING...FREE...AN AVERAGE OF ALMOST $19,000 TO EACH HOUSEHOLD IN THE BOTTOM 40 PERCENT.
Walter Williams, a well-known black economist, said in his book entitled Where Are the Poor? that "Real material poverty, to any significant degree, simply does not exist in the United States."
He goes on to show that the so-called "poor" in the US live far better than the middle class in most other countries.
So why in the hell are we taxpayers paying nearly $19,000 per year to every sub-60 percent household??? Why can't they...or, more precisely...why will they not take care of themselves???
The answer is that they have been conditioned to believe they are entitled to government largesse. That is a political reality Democrats developed and honed to a keen edge to keep the so-called "dependent" minorities in their fold. And it's a big part of the reason the national debt is approaching the entire GDP of the US.
