95% of Americans Who Say They Havenít Used a Government Social Program Really Have
Many Americans donít realize how much of a role the federal government plays in their lives.



Ninety-five percent of those who say they have not used a social program in fact have done so, according to a research paper by two Cornell University professors.



Using data from the 2008 Social and Governmental Issues and Participation Study, Suzanne Mettler and Julianna Koch found the majority of those who claimed to not have accessed a government program did soóand not just one program, either. On average, the donít-use-them respondents actually used 3.8 programs at one time or another.



Some of the programs are what are known as ďsubmerged policiesĒ that get little attention, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit; the Home Mortgage Interest Deduction; and Child and Dependent Care Tax Credits. However even in the case of high-profile programs, many beneficiaries were unaware that they were using a government program. For example, 45% of Americans enrolled in Social Security replied that they did not benefit from a government program, as did 41% who qualified for Medicare.



Mettler and Koch said the negative discourse toward government over the past three decades may have influenced Americans to lose conscious sight of what Washington does on a day-to-day basis for people.

That's a clear indication of how engrained government is into everything and why it should be scaled back.

Social programs are all about control.

Controlling the people.

That is all the government and people who run the government want.
