    The ACA (ObamaCare) mandates that all Americans buy health insurance or pay a fine. To offset the pain of purchasing these new, extremely expensive health insurance policies, the ACA offers health insurance subsidies to families making under $95k a year. Considering the median income in America is ~$60k a year, as of Jan. 1 2014, most Americans will now be on some form of government assistance (or have to pay a fine)

    This article sums it up nicely.
    Americans who were recipients of means-tested government benefits in 2011 outnumbered year-round full-time workers, according to data released this month by the Census Bureau.
    They also out-numbered the total population of the Philippines.

    There were 108,592,000 people in the United States in the fourth quarter of 2011 who were recipients of one or more means-tested government benefit programs, the Census Bureau said in data released this week. Meanwhile, according to the Census Bureau, there were 101,716,000 people who worked full-time year round in 2011. That included both private-sector and government workers.

    That means there were about 1.07 people getting some form of means-tested government benefit for every 1 person working full-time year round
    Meanwhile, back in California, Nancy Pelosi promises to win the House back for the Democratic party in the aftermath of the government shutdown. How does she plan to do it? Simple!

    If Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) were to become Speaker again, she would work to pass a sweeping bill that would significantly expand federal childcare benefits.

    Democrats. They will make a poor and dependent, or die trying.
