Half of US social program recipients believe they " have not used a government social program"

(Click or double click on the image to enlarge it.)

I found this over on Boing Boing. Here's what they said over there:

"...this [is a] remarkable chart showing that about half of American social program beneficiaries believe that they "have not used a government social program." It's the "Keep your government hands off my Medicare" phenomena writ large: a society of people who subsist on mutual aid and redistributive policies who've been conned (and conned themselves) into thinking that they are rugged individualists and that everyone else is a parasite."

What can I say, folks? Go figure.
