100 million Americans do not vote. In 2010, "Fifty-four percent of non-voters this year identify themselves as Democrats, compared to just 30 percent who align with Republicans, the Pew survey found. Non-voters are also overwhelmingly more likely to profess ignorance of the Tea Party than their likely voter peers." "Statistics show non-voters tend to be younger, less educated, less affluent than their voting peers and more likely to be a member of a minority group." So when the republicans crush their little social programs and leave them setting on the corner, they will have no one to blame but themselves, for the most part, in my opinion.
