It's a matter of perspective.
And you need to compare apples with apples. So absolute amounts are irrelevant. Relative percentages of GDP, or spendings per thousand tell a whole different story when compared to, say, Scandinavia, Finland, the low countries, Germany, Austria, or Switzerland.
62% of US GDP, the largest GDP on the planet, is spent on social programs/entitlements. Perhaps you have no idea what you are talking about.
