A prime example why the US government needs to stop the road they are on.

This is a short part of the story: Family who are 'too fat to work' say £22,000 worth of benefits is not enough A family of four with a combined weight of 83 stone say they are "too fat to work" and need more than the £22,000 they currently receive in benefits. Here is the link, read the whole article, it tells what assistance they get. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/5004431/Family-who-are-too-fat-to-work-say-22000-worth-of-benefits-is-not-enough.html This is just too nuts. What do you think?

I agree this story is crazy... but isn't it from the UK? I know the USA also has problems, and you could proably find other strange stories (e.g. corporate bailouts like AIG) but this example doesn't appear to be from the United States.

No, but this is the road we are on. This is a product of socialism.
