    It's a common belief that there is a huge welfare problem and half the country doesn't pay taxes.  Just look at all those poor people, yada, yada.

    The 47% has been used before as far back as Nixon who used it against McGovern with a claim that that many would be on welfare if McGovern was elected.

    It's one of those things that the MSM would never report on but the word of mouth among R's has always carried.  I heard it from an acquaintance earlier this year.

    Congressional elections have consequences!
