Charting the Producers vs. the Takers

I want to pose this as a little think piece for you. ‘Cause I find this fascinating. I ran across this at, There’s a guy there by David Goldman who writes under the name of “Spengler.” We have always focused on the tipping point in this country being where net takers from the government begin to outnumber the payers.

People getting government assistance outnumbering those of us who pay taxes to pay for it. That’s always been what we’ve looked at as the tipping point, that the country’s lost once there are more of them than there are of us. But Mr. Goldman points out — and he’s got plenty of charts. I’ll send a link to Koko. We’ll link to it at (Give me some time to do that ’cause I’m swamped here.) He points out that the biggest net takers (and he’s got the chart data to back this up) are not welfare recipients.
