The total number of people in the United States now receiving federal disability benefits hit a record 10,962,532 million in April, which exceeds the 10,815,197 people who live in the nation of Greece.
According to newly released data from the Social Security Administration, the record 10,962,532 total disability beneficiaries in April, included a record 8,865,586 disabled workers (up from 8,853,614 in March), 1,936,236 children of disabled workers, and 160,710 spouses of disabled workers.
According to its latest census, Greece had only 10,815,197 residents.
When we combine these frightening numbers with the unemployment, welfare, food stamp and other disincentive programs promoted by the Marxist/Progressives, it becomes perfectly clear this regime abhors the principles upon which our country was founded. Thomas Paine wrote he would not trade freedom for beneficence or his dignity for a handout. He realized each dole granted by the evil government meant less freedom for the citizens. This path can only lead to more and more government reliance which is more and more enslavement. This is how totalitarianism develops.
