No Sport. What it shows is exactly what I said, that 100% of federal revenue is spent on welfare.

It also shows that you don't pay taxes for "infrastructure". All tax revenue is spent on welfare.

You challenged the statistic. There it is.

How is it stealing? Because people vote for government to steal in their stead so that they can keep getting their check.

It is fundamentally no different than armed robbery.
