I keep repeating that number with pinky finger extended to the side of my mouth…
Welfare. More money spent than on Social Security. More money spent than on Defense. More money spent than on Medicare.
I am stunned that we have poured one trillion dollars into 83 means tested programs. One more reason why we need to kill and restrict a lot of these programs that seem to spend whatever they feel like spending with no limits.
The abuses in these programs are rampant, so when Romney gets sworn in maybe the new congress can start chainsawing and eliminating these abusive wastes of money.
