Those getting "Subsidies" consist largely of Social Security recipients, and the working poor.
"The Dept. of Health data suggests 1.7% of the total population that derive over 50% of their income from Welfare supports.
The number stated that receive any portion of their support from from welfare assistance--including food stamps--it is 29,900,000 or roughly 8% of the total population in the United States. "
The problem is that the top 1/10th of 1% make as much as the entire bottom 50%, according to IRS statistics. This is a drastic change from as recently as 1980, when the entire top 1% made less than 1/2 what the bottom 50% made.
It's not the poor that are picking your pocket, it's the rich, who even after the current tax increase are still paying less than they've paid in 80 years.
