Who Really Benefits From The Safety Net?


Via the NY Times:

Black people, who make up 22% of the poor, receive 14% of government benefits. White people, who make up 42% of the poor, receive 69% of government benefits.

Oh dear. If this gets out.... nah, it won't change a damned thing.

Because it's not as if Teabaggers pay any attention to facts. See, they can't simply say, "Oh, good, I was wrong and I don't need to worry about that. Apparently the people I thought were freeloaders are carrying their share of the load, and then some."

Their heads might explode.

So they'll simply point out you can't believe anything you read in the New York Times. See how that works?
