More Americans are financially dependent on the government than ever
before.  For a variety of reasons, there are now tens of millions of
Americans that would not be able to survive without government assistance.

she was recently found living in a single motel room with 12 of those
Adams is looking for the government to come in and rescue her.  The
following is what Adams told one reporter....
