    “In huge areas of the south, government benefits account for over 30% of all the income in the county.”

    And that percentage is actually low because a third of families who are eligible for food stamps (and other means-tested programs) aren’t even enrolled. That’s one argument for shifting towards a negative income tax, your tax return is also your enrollment form.
