  •  The problem I see with this (5+ / 0-)

    Is that at there is a standard working here that is different than for any other government service. You don't have to repay most government benefits. Corporations sure as hell don't repay their subsidies if the jobs they promise don't come through. Only the very poor are expected to give up everything they own in order to get benefits needed to survive. As a result, they have no chance of passing along that little house they worked so hard for to their children, and those children have even less chance of moving out of poverty. It's a completely different standard just for those who have the least.

    If I find myself in that situation, you better believe I will do everything in my power to get my assets to my kids rather than let the government take it so they can give Exxon another subsidy.

    Be bold. Be courageous. Americans are counting on you. Gabby Giffords.
