Welfare and Obamacare: Did You Know...


Welfare and Nationalized Healthcare (Obamacare) statistics and information of interest (or at least should be) for all Americans!

Except of course for those in Washington who, in the case of Obamacare, won't have to worry about its implementation as they will be keeping their gold-plated government health insurance funded by the schmucks on Main Street who have allowed this to happen.

And in the case of welfare those in Washington will also be exempt from this scourge as they, and those they know, will always be well taken care of financially by the system of crony capitalism that is so well ensconced in our political framework! 

Make them suffer through Obamacare and a line at the unemployment office and guess what? 

Obamacare never would have been passed in the first place and substantive action rather than empty rhetoric would be put into play in the arena of jobs and the economy!

I received the following by one of my subscribers and while I cannot specifically say that these statistics are 100% accurate they are certainly 100% believable!

Welfare in the United States
These 11 States now have More People on Welfare than they do Employed!

Last month, the Senate Budget Committee reports that in fiscal year 2012, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. Household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support. 

What's the problem with that much support? Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000,which averages out to $137.13 a day.

To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for a 40-hour week, while the average job pays $20.00 an hour.

U.S. Healthcare versus Canada and England

A recent "Investor's Business Daily" article provided very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.

Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:

U.S. 65%

England 46%

Canada 42%

Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months:

U.S. 93%

England 15%

Canada 43%

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:

U.S. 90%

England 15%

Canada 43%

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:

U.S. 77%

England 40%

Canada 43%

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:

U.S. 71

England 14

Canada 18

Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in "excellent health":

U.S. 12%

England 2%

Canada 6%

And now, logically:

National Health Insurance?

U.S. NO

England YES

Canada YES

Business background of the Washington elites making life and business decisions for the people who put them there

Check this last set of statistics!!

The percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet. You know what the private business sector is; a real-life business, not a government job. Here are the percentages.

T. Roosevelt.................... 38%

Taft................................ 40%

Wilson ........................... 52%

Harding........................... 49%

Coolidge......................... 48%

Hoover ............................ 42%

F. Roosevelt..................... 50%

Truman........................... 50%

Eisenhower................ .... 57%

Kennedy......................... 30%

Johnson.......................... 47%

Nixon.............................. 53%

Ford................................ 42%

Carter............................. 32%

Reagan............................ 56%

GH Bush.......................... 51%

Clinton .......................... 39%

GW Bush........................ 55%

Obama............................. 8%

This helps to explain the incompetence of this administration: only 8% of them have ever worked in private business!

That's right! Only eight percent---the least, by far, of the last 19 presidents! And these people are trying to tell our big corporations how to run their business?

How can the president of a major nation and society, the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business when he's never worked for one? 

 Or about jobs when he has never really had one? And when it's the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers? 

 They've spent most of their time in academia, government and/or non-profit jobs or as "community organizers." 

 They should have been in an employment line.
