Hat Tip to John Stossel:
Obama and his motley crew of Dems want to make the United States ‘more like Europe’. Joe Biden has remarked that paying higher taxes is “patriotic”.
Take a look at this “what-the-fuck?” example of Euro socialism.
A single mother-of-six is getting more than £80,000 a year from the taxpayer to live in a £2million mansion in an exclusive London suburb.
Essma Marjam, 34, is given almost £7,000 a month in housing benefits to pay the rent on the five-bedroom villa just yards from Sir Paul McCartney’s house and Lord’s cricket ground.
She also receives an estimated £15,000 a year in other payouts, such as child benefit, to help look after her children, aged from five months to 14.
The four-storey house in Maida Vale has five bedrooms, two bathrooms, a double living room, large fitted kitchen-diner with French doors on to the landscaped garden and a state-of-the art buzzer entry system.
Astonishingly, it is understood Miss Marjam found the house on the internet through a private letting agency, rather than waiting for Westminster council to give her a vacant property on their books.
She then applied to the council for the £1,600-a-week benefit – the maximum amount the council allows.
Miss Marjam said: ‘I moved here at the beginning of the month as I’m entitled to a five-bedroom house.
…..She does, however, have two large flat-screen televisions and several leather sofas, plus a large amount of children’s toys scattered over the wooden floorboards.
During the week, vans from Argos and other home stores dropped off large purchases.
Miss Marjam does not work, as she spends all day looking after her children – Zekia, 14, Abdulhakim, 13, Jihad, 11, Hamza, ten, Ayman, two, and five-month-old Nasir.
The four eldest have the surname Benjamin, while the two youngest have the surname Khan.

Congratulations, British workers. How’s that Labour Party treating you?
There’s a whole demographic of able-bodied leeches in America who have never worked and never intend to work. We are forced to support these derelicts through our taxes and (soon) more tax increases. The Octo-Mom comes to mind.
So does this quote:
A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.
—Presidential Gerald R. Ford in an address to a joint session of Congress, 12 August 1974.
I’d add, “And give what you have to lazy mutherfuckers with a sense of unearned entitlement.”
