The bottom 50% pay 3% of the federal taxes. The bottom 40% pay only 4% of their “fair” share of all taxes. Why wouldn’t they be happy with the administration who is buying off the majority with the labor of the few? This is – at best – socialism.

There are 35.4% on welfare. More than 46 million are on food stamps. More than 93 million are out of the work force completely.
