Romney should hammer on this but i doubt he does. He knows if he calls obozo a socialist, the media will call him a racist.

Govt spent $1.028 trillion on welfare in FY 2011 | The Daily Caller

12:00 AM 10/18/2012

The government spent approximately $1.03 trillion on 83 means-tested federal welfare programs in fiscal year 2011 alone — a price tag that makes welfare that year the government’s largest expenditure, according to new data released by the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee.

The total sum taxpayers spent on federal welfare programs was derived from a new Congressional Research Service (CRS) report on federal welfare spending — which topped out at $745.84 billion for fiscal year 2011 — combined with an analysis from the Republican Senate Budget Committee staff of state spending on federal welfare programs (based on “The Oxford Handbook of State and Local Government Finance”), which reached $282.7 billion in fiscal year 2011.

The data excludes spending on Social Security, Medicare, means-tested health care for veterans without service-connected disabilities, and the means-tested veterans pension program.

If you say obozo has big ears, the press says you're talking in code and you really mean he's black. Everything is a racist conspiracy to hear the press tell it.
