8. Two thoughts here

1) The study includes social security as a 'benefit' (which I disagree with) and goes on to point out that 95% of that goes to people over 65. No duh. I'd like to see the numbers after SS is excluded.

2) Their data is taken exclusively from Census data. Blacks and Hispanics have much lower response rates to the Census than do whites, so this study is very flawed IMO.
