    "You are your brother's keeper" only extends so far. They can find plenty of Bible quotes to prop up any ol' injunction they want to ignore.

    The one above? They can always brush it away like Rand Paul does, quoting St Paul's II Thessalonians, "He who does not work, neither shall he eat." Apparently they starve the halt and lame, sick, elderly,infants and children, and anyone hard up enough to not have employment.

    If God had wanted these people to live, He wouldn't have made them sick and broke. It's not like there is any reason to keep them around. After all, if they were worth keeping, they would be taken care of because someone would take care of them. It's sad, but these things happen, and we can't afford to take care of all the sad cases.

    The worst thing is that so  sick people believe that conclusion, as well.

    They say "cut back" - we say "fight back"!
