Who Are The 47%?

The 47% are people who get out of the system what they've paid into the system.

From Tara:

Everyone's rushing to explain which Americans make up Mitt Romney's maligned 47%.  This article and graphic present the information in the clearest format I've seen.

I'm keeping this short, because I am hard at work paying back my student loans.  Later today, I'll probably talk with my parents, who are retired and receive Social Security and Medicare.  Thank goodness for all the makers out there who keep the takers like us afloat!
