Truth hurts

The Census Bureau broke the data down like this:

26.4% of U.S. households had someone enrolled in Medicaid (the health-care program for low-income Americans)
16.2% of households had at least one member receiving Social Security.
15.8% lived in a household receiving food stamps
14.9% had a member with Medicare benefits
4.5% of households received assistance with their rent
1.7% had a member receiving unemployment benefits.

Most of the "non payers" are in republican states and are largely republican voters. At least were before Littleface put his foot in his mouth. Again.

That's exactly the Republican problem with this issue and why prominent Republicans like David Brooks and William Kristol are calling Romney stupid and dumb.
