Amazing Statistics

This is ridiculous, If we keep voting the same way we have we will keep getting the same results, over and over, and over.

1.  California
New Mexico
Mississippi
Alabama
Illinois
Kentucky
Ohio
New York
Maine
South Carolina

These 11 States now have more people on welfare than they do employed!


2. Last month, the Senate Budget Committee reports that in fiscal year 2012, between food stamps, housing support, child care,Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. Household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support.

What’s the problem with that much support?

Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000, which averages out to $137.13 a day.

To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for 40 hour week, while the average job pays $24.00 an hour.


3. A recent “Investor’s Business Daily” article provided statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization:

Percentage (%) of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis
U.S.                65%
England         46%
Canada          42%

% of patients diagnosed with diabetes received treatment within 6 months:
U.S.                93%
England         15%
Canada          43%

% of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:
U.S.                90%
England         15%
Canada          43%

%  referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:
U.S.               77%
England         40%
Canada          43%

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:
U.S.                71
England         14
Canada          18

% of seniors (65+), with low income, who are in “excellent health”:
U.S.               12%
England           2%
Canada            6%

National Health Insurance?
U.S.                 NO
England         YES
Canada          YES


4. The percentage of each past president’s cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet.

You know what the private business sector is – a real-life business, not a government job.

Here are the percentages.
38%    T. Roosevelt
40%    Taft
52%    Wilson
49%    Harding
48%    Coolidge
42%    Hoover
50%    F. D. Roosevelt
50%    Truman
57%    Eisenhower
30%    Kennedy
47%    Johnson
53%    Nixon
42%    Ford
32%    Carter
56%    Reagan
51%    GH Bush
39%    Clinton
55%    GW Bush
8%   Obama

This helps explain the bias, if not the incompetence, of this current administration:  ONLY 8% of them have ever worked in private business!

Only eight percent – the least, by far, of the last 19 presidents!

And these people are trying to tell our corporations how to run their business?

How can the president of a major nation and society, the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business when he’s never worked for one?

Or, about jobs when he has never really had one?

And, when it’s the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers?

They’ve spent most of their time in academia, government, and/or non-profit jobs or as “community organizers.”
