For the first time since the 1930s, personal taxes paid by Americans aren’t 
enough to cover the payments that the government sends out through transfer 
programs like Social Security and food stamps. The trend, visible in 
government data on personal incomes, reflects both a deep recession and 
government efforts to prop up the economy.
