Food stamps, rental assistance, day care assistance, utility bill assistance, Cobra health care, unemployment checks for 90 weeks......
Check out the Food Stamp balances (your money) in this article I wrote back in 2008: http://coralvillecourier.typepad.com/community/2008/04/food-stamp-prog.html
As the owner of a small ethnic grocery store, I got so upset with the fraud, waste and abuse I witnessed in the Food Stamp program (and the complete lack of concern by the government), I stopped accepting them and returned my equipment to the USDA office in Des Moines. When some customers asked me why I quit accepting Food Stamps, the reply was "What? C'mon man, that's free food!"
Here's another link of interest, proving Mitt Romney right: http://coralvillecourier.typepad.com/community/2011/09/food-stamp-users-getting-free-cell-phones.html
A lot of the people on government handout programs are TAKERS, not producers and liberal-minded government is CREATING dependency. Note that I didn't write ALL participants. But the numbers are MANY to be sure.

Mitt Romney is absolutely correct, there is a percentage of the population who have a victim mentality, an entitlement mentality and a desire for government dependence. HE TOLD THE TRUTH!
Thank you! A politician that told the truth!
I'm glad Romney said what he said. This country needs to have the discussion of takers and producers, somebody needed to start the dialog and he did.
