    ... but I just checked out the comments after the article.  The Tea Party v. 2.0 is represented by a few people.  They ask about how can we help the poor and not help "free-loaders".  They don't of course, as the same question about how the wealthy, by virtue of government largesse like tax breaks for capital income and relatively low tax rates generally, get a so-called "free ride" in this country.  Sad, really.

    They don't get it.
