FemiStats: Obama’s Welfare Stats and the Outlook for the US
Thursday, November 12, 2015 at 1:37 pm — admin
Obama’s economy Numbers are pretty rotten. Take a look:
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.
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.
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.
Only 14.7% of married families relied on welfare to care for them.
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
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.
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.
