Welfare State? What Welfare State?

Sheldon Adelson tells Forbes he is willing to spend $100 million on the US election.

He probably ain’t doing it for Romney’s autograph.

Meanwhile, the median household US income is approximately $26672.

$100 million / $26672 = 3749.

One man using 3749 households’ worth of money to sway one election.

I could probably go the rest of my life without hearing a better joke than that.
