It’s a tough message, but I believe he makes some points that need hearing.
In this country we also have the far left telling us that the poor (and in many cases, the average family) need more government assistance. But those same people who “need” assistance are already getting thousands per year from programs like Working For Families, often more far more than they pay in tax. In fact, we now have our government supported by an incredibly small number of taxpayers – small wonder we’re running deficits.
Giving money for nothing is a chumps game. It’s a vicious cycle, where “fixing” the need instead drives demand for more need. And it’s even more vicious to break. When National finally broke it back in the 90’s… well, they’re still paying for it now, 20 years later.
