In 1 in 5 Families in U.S., No One Works

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/ali-...s-no-one-works

"In 2014, there were 80,889,000 families in the United States, and in 16,057,000 of those families, or 19.9 percent, no one had a job."

No problem ... we'll find whoever still has money and take it from them. Then we'll distribute it "fairly" ....

the family has been destroyed, government has taken over that role. Young girls getting knocked up immediately run to get signed up for welfare-food stamps- Medicaid...back in the day it was rare that a child didn't have both parents taking care of them. Now, its an oddity if both are taking on their responsibility. Hell I know a few folks my age who have COMPLETELY taken over care of their grandchildren as the parents are totally worthless.

Despite what has been argued here on GTPI, it is indeed profitable to have more children when you don't have a job. More kids = more money. Plenty of people walking around, collecting disability. Plenty of people having child after child, expecting the taxpayers to foot the bill. Plenty of people walking around, looking for trouble.

To be fair, this includes people who are retired, people who are honestly between jobs, and people with true disabilities that make it impossible for them to work, as well as the leeches of society. Now, I hate the leeches as much as anyone, but let's not use shaky statistics to make our point.

Now it's an oddity if they even know who the 2nd parent actually IS!!!

It's the only statistic we got, what with the Maobama regime cooking the books on unemployment figures.

I don't think that statistic really tells us what we might expect. It seems that it includes retired folks as well as unemployed, disabled, and leeches. Seeing as how the graph shows that it didn't change appreciably since the mid 90s when the graph starts until 2009 which would seem to correspond with the economy dumping, one could rightly infer that the constant 20% or so shown since 2009 corresponds to the progressive led economic recovery of the last 6+ years. So, maybe it does tell us what we all know to be the truth.

This just goes to show why we need to welcome even more able bodied illegal immigrants to come here to work and vote Democrat, so even more Democrat citizens can not work!

The first generation tends to work pretty hard...............the second generation...............not so much.
