How does one manage to gather that kind of data on millions of people?
Not-so-ancient Chinese secret. But do you dispute that Most Americans Now Receive Government Benefits?
So you admit then that you have absolutely no idea if there is the slightest bit of reality in the claim. We discussed your Forbes link before and how dishonest your claim on it is. The majority of the recipients of the benefits in that article are people who are receiving benefits that they have already paid for (e.g., social security, VA). Pointing to that article again does nothing to provide any support to the outrageous claims in what you posted to in this JE.
