American culture is changing and apparently the progressives are winning because (LINK) the Census Bureau reported in a study released this week that 65 percent of American children lived in households taking aid from one or more federal program as of the fall of 2011.
"Almost two-thirds (65 percent) of children," said the Census Bureau, "lived in households that participated in at least one or more of the following government aid programs: Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), Medicaid, and the National School Lunch Program."
It's a battle against self reliance and it's a battle for the culture of the nation. The safety net - for the very poorest Americans now extends upward to 65% of children. Look around you, at your neighborhood, and ask yourself if well over half of the children are needy. These young people are being trained to be dependent on government.
