FemiStats: Obama’s Welfare Stats and the Outlook for the US

Obama’s economy Numbers are pretty rotten. Take a look:
Almost a quarter of the U.S. population is now on some form of means-tested welfare program.
Let that sink in for a second: Approximately 25% of people in the United States are dependent upon government to take care of all or some of their daily needs. Wow. And it's gonna get worse if Dems have their way.

Here are some numbers: 21.3 percent people in the U.S. participated in major means-tested government assistance programs each month in 2012, per a recent U.S. Census Bureau report.
The average monthly participation rate in major means-tested programs increased from 18.6 percent in 2009 to 20.9 percent in 2011.
Most likely to be on welfare during this period: Children under age 18 were more likely to receive means-tested benefits than all other age groups.

In an average month, 39.2 percent of children received some type of means-tested benefit, compared with 16.6 percent of people age 18 to 64 and 12.6 percent of people 65 and older.
Say whaaat?? Yes, folks that’s 40% of kids are now dependent upon government rather than parents for all or some of their daily needs.
By race the numbers are black most welfare dependent, followed by Hispanics, then Asians as per below.
Only 13% of whites were welfare dependent during this time period.
At 41.6 percent, blacks were more likely to participate in government assistance programs in an average month.

The black participation rate was followed by Hispanics at 36.4 percent, Asians or Pacific Islanders at 17.8 percent, and non-Hispanic whites at 13.2 percent.
When dad’s not present it gets downright scary with half of female-headed households dependent upon Uncle Sam (taxpayers that is!) to take care of them.
50 percent, people in female-householder families had the highest rates of participation in major means-tested programs.

Only 14.7% of married families relied on welfare to care for them.
Wow. Big difference.

What does this mean for our future?

A couple of days after the above stats were release another report came out showing that the majority of kids under five in the U.S. are now minorities.

Millennials, or America’s youth born between 1982 and 2000, now number 83.1 million and represent more than one quarter of the nation’s population. Their size exceeds that of the 75.4 million baby boomers, according to new U.S. Census Bureau estimates
44.2 percent of Millennials are a minority race or ethnic group (that is, a group other than non-Hispanic, single-race white).

Even more diverse than millennials are the youngest Americans: those younger than 5 years old. In 2014, this group became majority-minority for the first time, with 50.2 percent being part of a minority race or ethnic group.

If Democrats want to continue to increase the number of folks on the goodies train—and they do want that!--they’d better get a calculator, because the ability to keep that train going is going to decline very rapidly as the proportion of those who are not reliant upon government shrinks and shrinks and shrinks.

And yes, Immigration is a big issue here too folks—as we know that immigrants often rely on welfare programs to take care of them years and years and years after their arrival into this country, especially those who come here illegally.

From Washington Examiner:

A comprehensive study of U.S. Census Bureau reports of welfare participation revealed Wednesday that 51 percent of immigrants -- legal and illegal -- access welfare programs.

Welfare use is high for both new arrivals and long-time residents. Of households headed by immigrants who have been in the country for more than two decades, 48 percent access welfare.
[almost three quarters of Hispanic immigrants rely on Welfare compared to 17% from South Asia]

Welfare use varies among immigrant groups. Households headed by immigrants from Central America and Mexico (73 percent), the Caribbean (51 percent), and Africa (48 percent) have the highest overall welfare use. Those from East Asia (32 percent), Europe (26 percent), and South Asia (17 percent) have the lowest.





by 2044, today's majority white population will be the minority.
