    Yes it does but the government doesn't give it directly to people they give it to agencies. To disperse on their behalf. Example LIHEAP assist person with their electric bill. There are programs to assist with home mortgages and programs to assist you in bailing you out of debt as far as your mortgage is concerned to help you keep your house. There is food programs. There is clothing programs. but it doesn't go straight into the hands of the people that goes into the hands of agencies that disperse the money for the state and federal government

    Trillions of dollars. (Transfer payments). Not to “ordinary folks”, but to people who do not work for a living for various reasons. Lots and lots of reasons. If you are “ordinary folks” who get up in the morning and go to work, you pay for all this laziness that our government wants to encourage and reward.

    Can't say I've ever gotten any real money from the Federal Government yet. I'm sure I will after age 67. But so far, it's just pay pay pay for me.

    Yes. And vice versa is also true.
