The people who vote for a living are taking money from those who work for a living. More than half of the country gets more in handouts than they pay in taxes.
Now that we are at the point where a majority of the voting population receives more in benefits than it pays in taxes, voters will demand more and more wealth be transferred to them through government programs. It is now politically necessary to extract larger and larger amounts of wealth from a minority in order to subsidize the majority. The national economy is doomed to fail. It is inevitable, and things will continue to get worse.
The US is now officially a socialist nation.
