49.1%: Percent of the population that lives in a household where at least one member received some type of government benefit in the first quarter of 2011.
This number is misleading because it includes those receiving social security benefits even though they already paid at least something into the system.
I’m also not sure where he got 49.1% unless it’s overlap.
That number is concerning.
I’m sure it will come down some by the time Generation X retires and they means test us out of our benefits because we sacrificed and saved on our own.
