10. Where exactly does the idea that the U.S. leads any of us, come from?
We have our own gov'ts, military, resources, membership in world organizations, trade partners from all over the world .... how exactly are we being lead? I've never understood this and find it slightly insulting. Seriously. People of all nations fight for their own economies, social programs, values ... we've accomplished what we've got on our own, sometimes with great struggle, and we certainly didn't depend on anyone else to do it for us. Sorry, but I don't get it ... and I don't mean this in a disrespectful way.

As to the OP, I believe it is health-care and other social programs keep our middle class from sinking as quickly in the event of sudden unemployment or loss.
