We have created an entitlement society. When you can vote yourself a raise or something free, what do you think will happen? The tax payers, like myself, are sick and tired of free loaders, those without a justifiable reason to be on public assistance, sucking our pockets dry. Do you have a drug addiction? No problem! Get on SSI! Alcoholic? No problem. Welfare! Worked for 3 years and want to retire? No problem! Someone else will pay for your designer jeans, your Jordans, your government issued cell phone. There’s people that legitimately need assistance and I have no problem with that. I have a problem with the SCAM ARTISTS that siphon the life out of tax payers. I am the 50.5% and I approve this message.
“…When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.” — Benjamin Franklin
