If not, then we're down to about 8% of the population that's completely dependent on government. Big big difference from 47%.

Romney was just playing into rich people's fears that the poors are out-voting them. He also happened to use a talking point that most of you believe without delving too deeply into it apparently.
You don't see a problem when virtually half the country doesn't pay income tax, our debt is over $16T, and we run annual federal budget deficits over $1T?
