  •  They want the government they want only when (5+ / 0-)

    they need it. It'd be like paying for insurance ONLY on the day you're house burns down (and they'd love to do it afterwards so they could claim the house was filled with unverifiable treasures that were destroyed).

    This is the fundamental problem they have with safety nets, they can't deal with people needing them for long periods of time. The whole "pull yourself up by your bootstraps" mentality can't work if you don't even have bootstraps. So they piss and moan they're paying for others. Well boo effing hoo. And those others will pay for still others to come when they get the opportunity to do so. How about you stop whining and make sure they have access to jobs that make enough money so they can pay income taxes?

    What's wrong with America? I'll tell you. Everything Romney said was pre-chewed wads of cud from Republicans from the last 30 years and yet he managed thru a combination of racism and selling the (false) hope of riches to get 47% of the national vote.
