    Feds: Too few Americans ‘turn to government for assistance’

    Feds: Too few Americans

    More Americans rely on their families for assistance than the government, so federal officials have undertaken an effort to help people to apply for federal assistance.

    “Given that only 15 percent of you turn to government assistance in tough times, we want to make sure you know about benefits that could help you,” USA.gov announced today. The ”government made easy’ website has created a “help for difficult financial times” page for people to learn more about the programs.

    The government got that statistic from a poll asking Americans what helps them the most during tough times. Here are the results:
    •Savings 44%
    •Family 21%
    •Credit cards/loans 20%
    •Government assistance 15%

    Avatar agrees. People should look to the government to help them make good choices about whether or not to enjoy pornography.

    If you control what the people need you control the people. They are much less likely to get rid of ya.

    Savings and family instead of government as primary is bad why?

    Oh wait, I get it, the government loses power and control if people aren't dependent upon them for the basic things in Maslow's hierarchy.
