Per my calculations the US has about 315,229,000 people in the country and 12,924,389 people on some type of welfare.
199,855,186 of the populous is white and 5,014,662.932 are on welfare
41,294,999 of the populous is African Americans and 5,143,906.822 are on welfare
52,643,242 of the populous is Latino and 2,029,129.073 are on welfare
21,435,389 of the populous is other races and 736,690.173 are on welfare
That is a lot of people living off government benefits. These numbers include Welfare, Housing, Unemployment, Medicare, SSI and Disabled Persons. This is an amazing amount of people getting help from the government.
