Over 100 million Americans on Federal Welfare.
The sad thing is the right wing will tell the employed and upper classes, those "poor people" are dragging the country down, we need to cut them off! This is the purpose the Tea Party served to take the heat off the banker bail-outs and trillions of dollars streaming overseas and put it on the increasing numbers of the poor of America as the 'culprit" for the national debt.
The left wing will have Obama continue to sign more NAFTA like bills like the Trans-Pacific and who is just as committed to the globalist vision destroying America. What else do you think will happen when American workers are competing against enslaved third world workers who work for pennies a day?

What I fear seeing something like this, is there will be just more "blame the victims" rhetoric, they will shove under the carpet the trillions that have gone to useless wars, rebuilding other countries! and the banker bail-outs. Already we hear about the "lazy good-for nothings" from the right wing day in and day out, while all these bigger issues are papered over. There is a cry now by the useless politicians to remove or severely cut the social safety nets. And for those who think it's a bad idea that so many are dependent on the government, I agree, that is not a good outcome, but where are the jobs? How can people make it anymore when wages have been so suppressed and so many are unemployed and the prices rising faster then a rocket? Look at the bigger picture here and what is happening. People don't even live on the land anymore to produce their own food, community and family have broken down. What other options do they have?--The Squawker
