Attitudes toward cheating the government: Americans (2,032 of them) were asked by the General Social Survey if it is wrong to give the government false information in order to get benefits. I calculated the percent who said it is not wrong by ethnic group:
Puerto Rican 13.7
American Indian 6.1
Americans of Western European descent are the most honest, while poor minorities (except for Amerindians) and Eastern Europeans are least honest.
And by now you must think I'm harping on this point, but as our largest immigrant group--Mexicans--continues to pour into the country, the number of people trying to cheat the system will increase.
