Check out this ad from Scott Walker's campaign where he took on our President. This was before he was elected Governor in Wisconsin.



The Defeat Obama Campaign is using this issue to take on our President in 2012. Check out this recent ad.



But check out Scott Walker's response today to our President's comments over the issue public sector unions.

Gov. Scott Walker on Monday afternoon responded to comments President Barack Obama made earlier in the day about the protests in Madison:

Walker’s office issued this statement:

I'm sure the President knows that most federal employees do not have collective bargaining for wages and benefits while our plan allows it for base pay. And I'm sure the President knows that the average federal worker pays twice as much for health insurance as what we are asking for in Wisconsin. At least I would hope he knows these facts.

“Furthermore, I’m sure the President knows that we have repeatedly praised the more than 300,000 government workers who come to work every day in Wisconsin.

“I’m sure that President Obama simply misunderstands the issues in Wisconsin, and isn’t acting like the union bosses in saying one thing and doing another.


Watch him explain on Meet the Press from Sunday.

I haven't had a chance to listen to it all the way through yet but the opening of the speech is excellent and so is the closing. I missed some parts in between as I was working.

As a Christian Values Voter concerned for the Values of our nation it is so good to have a Speaker of the House like a John Boehner. May God Bless America with more leaders like our Speaker. All I can do is rejoice and Praise God for such a Speaker and continue to pray for the leaders of our country!!!

President Reagan once said at a prayer breakfast in Dallas: "America needs God more than God needs America, If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a Nation gone under."

And to conclude with Reagan as he quotes Lincoln from the past in our nation's crisis of the Civil War in the 1800's and during the current economic crisis that Reagan faced in the 80's: "Abraham Lincoln once said, "I would be the most foolish person on this footstool earth if I believed for one moment that I could perform the duties assigned to me without the help of one who is wiser than all." I know that in the days to come and the years ahead there are going to be many times when there will only be one set of footprints in my life. If I did not believe that, I could not face the days ahead."-1981 National Day of Prayer Breakfast. Reagan was referring to that famous poem about the footprints in the sand.

Planned Parenthood still doesn't get. Planned Parenthood could get their funds to do all they are doing in below video if they will stop doing abortions. The fact remains that Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in America and no tax payer should be forced to fund an organization that promotes and does abortions. If Planned Parenthood is about women's health and not abortion then Planned Parenthood needs to stop doing abortions. Make Planned Parenthood get the message and call your Senator to tell them to defund them until they stop doing abortions.

If it is all about women's health and not abortions then why is Planned Parenthood willing to sacrifice women's health over abortion.

Below some comments is article of NBC's report of DEMOCRAT Rhode Island Mayor who fired all the cities teachers. But NBC mislabeled him as a Republican. Bias or mistake? Who knows but the media has a tendency to use labels in a bias way at NBC and other news sources. For more evidence of this see Party ID.

The liberal media would love to make this a partisan issue when it comes to state budgets. They would love to paint Republicans as the bad guys having to make "unnecessary" cuts when they can tax the job creators and the capital of the rich needed to invest and create those jobs in the private sector (which by the way funds the public sector). When in reality both Democrats and Republicans are dealing with the same problem in that they are running out of money and they do not believe it will create further revenue for there respected states to tax the job creators and capital that could be used to create jobs running investments out of their state. Believe it or not all that Governor Christie did in New Jersey was approved by a Democrat led New Jersey state legislature. In Wisconsin it is true that the House, the Senate and the Governor flipped from Democrat to Republican in 2010 and so there it will be a truly partisan issue but nationwide it is hardly the case as is further evidenced in Rhode Island. Either cut the benefits or loose jobs for there is no more money.

Sure there is another option which public sector unions always point out and that is tax the job creators (the rich), tax the private sector and tax the rewards of production/reinvestment and job creation but then you have less capital to create private sector jobs with to grow for the future (a sector without which the public sector would not be funded) not to fail to mention less capital in the future to tax for that capital is not laying under the pillows of the rich but is actively being re-invested or put in a bank where it is growing via interest and the banks are then re-investing but if you tax it it will not grow nor have the opportunity to be re-invested in job creation for the next year.

It is also important to note that the more the rich are making the more revenue for that state and the more jobs will be created in that state via a product the masses find worthy of their purchase and all this without increasing taxes. But to unjustly tax production because public sector unions are out of control is not an option for fiscally conservative Republicans and Democrats who are under budget crunches and need to attract future investments into their state or at the federal level into their country to create jobs here and not overseas.

Besides when you compare the products the private sector gives us that we all willingly pay for cause we find value in them to the products that our Government many times unwillingly force upon us like ObamaCare and our poor educational system and our soon to be bankrupted Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid which is soon to bankrupt the whole country if nothing is done about it. At least when I buy a computer from the rich that money gets reinvested to create further products and jobs and actually grows but the products we get from our Government tends to lead to the inevitable bankrupting of it all. And that is the worst investment that could be made. Invest in an entity that is 14 trillion dollars in debt at other people's expense or invest in an entity that actually creates wealth so that the debt itself could be paid off. No man in his right or left mind will invest in a company that is 14 trillion in debt. We need to get the Government and all its unfunded political promises that will bankrupt us all out of the way so that "We the people..." can work hard and earn a better future for our children via all the collective talents of America and yes that even includes the talents of the rich and those talented in wisely investing and reinvesting. And you can bet it will trickle down to everybody in many different forms via jobs, salaries, benefits, better and more advanced products, etc etc etc. Just look at the 80's under Reagan.

We need both the talents of investors who invest in the product and the talents of the product makers. Both talents serve us well (the consumers who are both producers and investors in production) as we find the product valuable and we willingly choose to buy it. Unfunded expensive promises of politicians do not serve us well. In the end they bankrupt us. Look at the hidden unfunded promises of Government pushed homeownership. Sure temporarily it looked great but now we are finding it served none of us well and we will soon be in that position with ObamaCare, Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security if nothing is done unless our economy booms like it has never boomed before. There simply will be no money to fund these promises that some of our politicians are making to us. Business get it cause they have to get it or else they go bankrupt before bankrupting a nation. Governments don't seem to get it until it is to late.

If you believe it was entirely Wall Street, capitalism and greed that did in our economy in 2008 than do be sure to include the Government's huge rule in the demise at label Mortgage Crisis or start with Obama administration admitting that Fannie and Freddie were a "core part" of the country's financial woes remembering that Fannie and Freddie in 2008 were GSE's (Government Sponsored Enterprise) which hugely distorted the private sector market. In other words the market that failed was not a true free market especially the market that caused the financial melt down in 2008 namely the mortgage market.

Now finally to the article....

NBC Mislabels Dem Mayor as 'R' After Providence Fires All Its School Teachers-Media Research Center.

On Sunday’s NBC Nightly News, a report filed by correspondent Kevin Tibbles mislabeled the Democratic Mayor of Providence, Rhode Island, Angel Taveras, as a Republican during the piece which recounted that the city’s school board had fired all its teachers with the intent to hire back some of them to help solve the city’s budget problems.

Anchor Lester Holt briefly referred to protesters in Madison, Wisconsin, as he introduced the report:

In Madison, Wisconsin, protesters who’ve camped out at the state capitol for more than a week were under orders to clean up and get out today, meaning remove their sleeping bags, their signs, and themselves. Tonight, hundreds have done so. Wisconsin is one of many states public employees find themselves under fire, and there’s one profession getting hit surprisingly hard as NBC's Kevin Tibbles reports.
After a clip of Providence Teachers Union President Steve Smith complaining about the city’s action, Tibbles moved to the soundbite of Mayor Taveras that had him misidentified as a Republican:
TIBBLES: The city says it will rehire the teachers it needs and let the rest go. Staring at a crippling deficit, the mayor says it’s time for drastic action.

MAYOR ANGEL TAVERAS (R-PROVIDENCE): We’re facing an unprecedented, unprecedented fiscal crisis in our city.
Below is a complete transcript of the report from the Sunday, February 27, NBC Nightly News:
LESTER HOLT: In Madison, Wisconsin, protesters who’ve camped out at the state capitol for more than a week were under orders to clean up and get out today, meaning remove their sleeping bags, their signs, and themselves. Tonight, hundreds have done so. Wisconsin is one of many states public employees find themselves under fire, and there’s one profession getting hit surprisingly hard as NBC's Kevin Tibbles reports.

KEVIN TIBBLES: School board members in Providence, Rhode Island, voted Thursday not to lay off teachers but to fire them all.

STEVE SMITH, PROVIDENCE TEACHERS UNION: They fired 1,926 teachers with no plan.

TIBBLES: The city says it will rehire the teachers it needs and let the rest go. Staring at a crippling deficit, the mayor says it’s time for drastic action.

MAYOR ANGEL TAVERAS (D-PROVIDENCE): We’re facing an unprecedented, unprecedented fiscal crisis in our city.

TIBBLES: Budget deficits and seemingly ironclad benefits packages now have teachers nationwide, including here in New York, under scrutiny.

MAYOR MICHAEL BLOOMBERG (I-NYC): When I say we have a budget deficit-

TIBBLES: Mayor Mike Bloomberg says he’s a supporter of unions, but his new city budget suggests close to 4,700 teachers could lose their jobs. The teachers responded with this ad:

CLIP OF AD: Mayor Bloomberg sees things differently than the rest of us. Our schools are short of money, yet he refuses to ask millionaires to pay their fair share.

TIBBLES: And in New Jersey, the governor has made teachers a central theme.

GOVERNOR CHRIS CHRISTIE (R-NJ) CLIP #1: Really, it's two places left in America where there's a profession where there is no reward for excellence and no consequence for failure. Of course, we all know the first one is weathermen.

CHRISTIE CLIP #2: Unfortunately, the second one is teaching.

CHESTER FINN, THOMAS B. FORDHAM INSTITUTE: The current situation is undesirable, both fiscally and educationally. It’s not good for kids. It’s not good for taxpayers.

TIBBLES: But there is concern as cities ask schools to do more with less, the children will suffer.

AARON PALLAS, COLUMBIA TEACHERS COLLEGE: Schools are seen as the last bastion of a kind of social order. And so, to have them subject to this kind of upheaval can't be good for kids.

TIBBLES: Doing the math in a fiscal crisis may leave schools feeling the pinch. Kevin Tibbles, NBC News, New York.

Found this video at Cecile Richards misleads: Planned Parenthood does NOT provide mammograms



Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood unwilling to give up abortions to serve women's other needs. What Cecile doesn't get is this is the use of tax payer's money and American tax payer's do no want their dollars to go to the biggest abortion provider in the US. Check out Mike Pence's speech on the House floor as to why this bill passed the House as he speaks just before the passage of the bill in the House at Video: Mike Pence speech on House floor to defund Planned Parenthood: "Maybe if Planned Parenthood would stop doing abortions than they could make an argument that they are not about abortions but I have a feeling that they would be willing to loose all tax payer funding of their organization than to give up abortions."

Also Republican aren't as hard as the congresswoman would have you believe. One could argue that the Democrats don't care about America cause they aren't willing to cut spending that is sending the whole nation into debt.

"Developing…

Phill Kline has just dropped a major bombshell.

In an ethics trial that is seeking to determine in part whether Kline acted too aggressively to enforce Kansas child rape laws in his capacity as Attorney General or Johnson Co. District Attorney, Kline just revealed to the court under oath that he found 166 instances during a specific time period when girls younger than 14 years old got abortions at clinics owned either by late-term abortionist George Tiller or Planned Parenthood of Overland Park.

But during that same time period, Kline testified, Planned Parenthood reported only one case of child rape, and Tiller reported only one case of child rape.

This means there were 164 instances when girls 13-years-old and younger had abortions at one of those abortion clinics, and the clinics failed to report the abortions to authorities."

An interesting development in the Christian Bed & Breakfast business owners. For more on that see Christian Bed and Breakfast owners forced to pay 6000 dollars for not allowing homosexual couples to share same room and Christian Bed and Breakfast owners being sued by homosexuals for not allowing unmarried couples to sleep in the same bed

Now this from The Christian Institute...

Gay-only B&Bs probed by equality commission

Homosexual-only hotels are set to be investigated by the Government’s equality watchdog for potential unlawful discrimination against heterosexuals.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) says it must establish an “objective balance”, having spent £15,320 of taxpayers’ money targeting Christian-run hotels and guesthouses.

Last year the Commission funded a controversial legal case against a Christian-run B&B for restricting double rooms to married couples.

Discriminatory

The case against Peter and Hazelmary Bull involved a clash of rights and the Equality Commission was criticised for backing one side against the other.

Now the Commission is trying to redress the imbalance. In a statement, it said: “As discriminatory issues concerning ‘Christian’ bed and breakfast establishments and hotels have been officially brought to our attention, and as we are testing the law in this area, there is a need for the Commission to establish an ‘objective balance’.

“We are, therefore, looking in to the matter of ‘gay-only’ hotels’/B&B establishments and the potentially discriminatory policies towards heterosexual couples that some of those ‘gay-only’ establishments may hold.”

Boundaries

The EHRC has far-reaching powers to enforce equality duties and support legal actions to “push the boundaries of the law”.

Earlier this month The Times reported that the quango was to have its budget cut by almost 60 per cent.

The newspaper said that the Commission’s budget will be cut to £22.5 million before the next General Election. Its budget has already been reduced from £60m to £53m by the Government.

Court

Peter and Hazelmary Bull, the owners of the Christian-run guesthouse, are set to appeal the decision against them. The Christian Institute has agreed to fund the appeal.

Mr and Mrs Bull were taken to court by Steven Preddy and his homosexual civil partner Martyn Hall.

His Hon. Judge Rutherford ruled against the Christians, declaring that they had acted unlawfully in not allowing Mr Preddy and Mr Hall to occupy a double room.

The Equality Act (Sexual Orientation) Regulations, Judge Rutherford found, say a homosexual civil partnership should be treated in the same way as a marriage when providing goods or services.

Destroy

Since the court ruling, the guesthouse has been targeted by numerous homosexual couples attempting to book double rooms in an apparent attempt to destroy the business.

Mrs Bull, 66, has also received abusive and menacing phone calls."

Found this excellent article and image at GatewayPundit who was actually at ground zero in a rally in support of Governor Walker.

"Wisconsin’s McIver Institute has been closely following the developments in Madison over the last week as government workers rally to protect their collective bargaining privileges against state budget cuts. But as teachers have abandoned their classrooms to picket at the state capitol, the state’s taxpayers are the ones paying the real price.

In Milwaukee, public school teachers who skipped out on work to engage in the protest have earned an estimated $3 million while not teaching students in Wisconsin’s largest school district.

Similarly, in Madison, a school district closed for three days due to teacher shortages, the district stands to lose about $2.7 million. To close the school on Monday alone, McIver estimates the school district paid more than $900,000."

Found this article at Family Research Council a good repost here for this President's Day or rather maybe Washington's Birthday. Also see Presidents Day: Gallup and Rasmussen concur Reagan the most influential and the greatest President even above Lincoln this year

George Washington: Father of Our Country-Family Research Council

Today, I wanted to take the opportunity to share a piece written by FRC's resident historian, Senior Fellow Bob Morrison. Bob's research has been featured in some of Dr. Bill Bennett's most recent books, including the series: America: The Last Best Hope.  
If you haven't read them, I encourage you to get your hands on a copy. Also, check out Bill's The American Patriot's Almanac for daily stories about our great country. Happy Presidents' Day!

By Act of Congress, this is still George Washington's Birthday. Although car dealers and shopping malls have told us over and over again it's Presidents Day, the law is clear: We are honoring today our first president, the Father of our Country.

George Washington has been described as "the gentlest of Christendom's captains." As a military man, he was incredibly brave, facing enemy bullets not once, but many times. But when he put away his sword, he placed a dove of peace--a biblical symbol--atop his beloved Virginia home, Mount Vernon. He was eulogized at his death in 1799 by Gen. Henry "Light Horse Harry" Lee, the father of Robert E. Lee. The elder Lee called Washington "first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen." Washington was an inspiration to virtually all the presidents who came after him.
Thomas Jefferson, our third President, said of George Washington:

For his was the singular destiny and merit, of leading the armies of his country successfully through an arduous war, for the establishment of its independence; of conducting its councils through the birth of a government, new in its forms and principles, until it had settled down into a quiet and orderly train; and of scrupulously obeying the laws through the whole of his career, civil and military, of which the history of the world furnishes no other example. . . . These are my opinions of General Washington, which I would vouch at the judgment seat of God, having been formed on an acquaintance of thirty years. . . .I felt on his death, with my countrymen, that 'verily a great man hath fallen this day in Israel.' 

Abraham Lincoln sought to model his own conduct on that of George Washington. Leaving Springfield by train for Washington, D.C. 150 years ago this month, President-elect Lincoln bade farewell to his Illinois neighbors with these touching words:

I now leave, not knowing when, or whether ever, I may return, with a task before me greater than that which rested upon Washington. Without the assistance of the Divine Being who ever attended him, I cannot succeed. With that assistance I cannot fail. Trusting in Him who can go with me, and remain with you, and be everywhere for good, let us confidently hope that all will yet be well. To His care commending you, as I hope in your prayers you will commend me, I bid you an affectionate farewell. 

So impressed with Washington's conduct was Lincoln that he made a point of kissing the Bible at this own inauguration--just as Washington had done in 1789. Washington's reliance on the Bible was fully shared by Lincoln, who called it "the best gift God has ever given to man...But for it we could not know right from wrong."

Through the centuries, some few Americans have sought to pull themselves up by pulling Washington down. This tendency was most exaggerated in the 1920s, when so-called Progressives thought they could "de-bunk" American history by giving it a Marxist slant. But when a book purporting to show that Washington was a failure was published, President Calvin Coolidge was asked what he thought of it. "Silent Cal" wasted few words on the muckraking book. He looked out the window of the White House toward the Washington Monument and drawled: "He's still there."

Ronald Reagan surely admired George Washington. When Ed Meese, Reagan's loyal lieutenant, was informed several years ago that Americans in an online poll had voted Reagan the greatest of all Americans, Mr. Meese was stunned. "He didn't think so," the former Attorney General said, "Ronald Reagan thought George Washington was the greatest American."

Today, let us thank God for the life of George Washington, the Father of our Country."

Now Rasmussen's poll only included President's for the last 50 years but Gallup's poll included all the presidents. Interesting enough Reagan was polled to be the greatest of all time this year for the third time out of 8 times the Gallup poll has polled this question.

We will start with Gallup poll results first and then the Rasmussen result next. Here is Gallup poll's comments in article titlted Americans Say Reagan Is the Greatest U.S. President notice that the comments reveal that Lincoln, Kennedy and Reagan have shared the spot over the last 8 times this poll has been taken and Lincoln has 4 years.

sc4m7pvjukkddoc0k0aj6a.gif

Presidents Day, celebrated on the third Monday of February each year, officially commemorates the Feb. 22 birthday of George Washington. The country's first president is not regarded by Americans as the nation's greatest president, however. Gallup's Feb. 2-5 update shows that Washington comes in fifth on the list, behind Reagan, Lincoln, Clinton, and Kennedy.

In the eight times Gallup has asked this same "greatest president" question over the last 12 years, one of three presidents -- Lincoln, Reagan, and Kennedy -- has topped the list each time. Reagan was the top vote getter in 2001, 2005, and now 2011. Lincoln won in 1999, in two 2003 surveys, and in 2007. Kennedy was on top in 2000, and tied with Lincoln in November 2003."

Now to move on to the Rasmussen poll of most influential President's over the last 50 years in an article titled 37% Consider Reagan Most Influential President of the Last 50 Years.

"Americans view Ronald Reagan as America's most influential president in the past half-century.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey finds that 37% of American Adults consider Reagan the most influential president in the last 50 years. John F. Kennedy is a distant second with 21%, closely followed by Bill Clinton who earns 19% support. (To see survey question wording, click here.

Just five percent (5%) say George W. Bush was most influential, followed by Lyndon B. Johnson (4%), Jimmy Carter (3%) and Richard M. Nixon (2%). Bottoming out the list are George H.W. Bush and Gerald Ford with one percent (1%) support each. Barack Obama was not on the list since his presidency is not yet over.

Reagan's numbers have been improving in recent years. In 2001, among post-war presidents, he ranked third after Kennedy and Dwight D. Eisenhower.  That same year, Reagan ranked ninth in favorability among all American presidents.

But by last year, 17% rated Reagan as America's most influential president in terms of his impact on history, third behind George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Washington is the only U.S. president who is officially honored with a federal holiday, but given a list of some of America’s most influential other past presidents, more than one-in-four Americans now say  Reagan should be honored with a federal holiday if another president were to be commemorated...."

Related: Showdown in Wisconsin as Republicans take control of the House, Senate and Governor to balance the budget

Rasmussen has this recent poll of voters in article titled 48% Back GOP Governor in Wisconsin Spat, 38% Side With Unions

"A sizable number of voters are following new Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s showdown with unionized public employees in his state, and nearly half side with the governor.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters agree more with the Republican governor in his dispute with union workers. Thirty-eight percent (38%) agree more with the unionized public employees, while 14% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

In an effort to close the state’s sizable budget deficit, Walker is proposing to eliminate collective bargaining for public employees including teachers on everything but wage issues. He is excluding public safety workers such as policemen and firemen from his plan.

Thirty-eight percent (38%) of voters think teachers, firemen and policemen should be allowed to go on strike, but 49% disagree and believe they should not have that right. Thirteen percent (13%) are not sure.

There’s strong partisan disagreement on both questions and a wide gap between the Political Class and Mainstream voters.

Thirty-six percent (36%) of all voters say that in their state the average public employee earns more than the average private sector worker. Twenty-one percent (21%) say the government employee earns less, while 20% think their pay is about the same. Twenty-three percent (23%) are not sure.

With states across the country finding that benefits for public workers are becoming difficult to fund in the current economic climate, support for public employee unions has fallenForty-five percent (45%) of Americans favor them, and 45% don’t. These findings include 21% who Strongly Favor such unions and 30% who are Strongly Opposed to them."

Found this cartoon at BigGovernment.com here.

Private Sector unions are one thing but Public Sector unions are quite another as this cartoon paints the biggest difference between the two. Also see Teachers union in Wisconsin is fighting for Viagra drug benefits at tax payer's expense from August of last year and see Liberal Hypocrisy playing out big time in Wisconsin against the GOP and Video: Paul Ryan discusses Madison protests in Wisconsin and Video: How public sector unions are making us more reliant on Government? and the latest exclusive video interview of Governor Scott Walker in Wisconsin at Video: Governor Scott Walker video interview at RightNetwork.com on the union protest.

Here are some excellent comments from the post that I found the cartoon at:

Missing in all this name-calling and finger-pointing is the honest truth about what’s happening in states like Wisconsin where unions have run budgets into the ground: and that truth is that public employees have grown so accustomed to pensions, health insurance, and other benefits coming to them via taxpayer expense that they can’t handle the thought of paying their own way like regular “volk” (a little joke for the “Hitler” chanters in the crowd.)

That’s right: Many of the marchers/protesters in Wisconsin are simply outraged that they may actually have to pay for the goods and services they’re used to forcing others to purchase for them. And they’re so blinded by their learned dependency on big government handouts that they can’t understand that Governor Walker is simply asking all employees in the state to carry their own weight for a change, because taxpayers in Wisconsin can’t do it any more: it’s financially untenable.

As Rush Limbaugh put it: “Average, ordinary Americans who are paying the salaries and the health benefits and the pensions [of union members] are losing their jobs and losing their homes. [So] there isn’t any money anymore!” And this means average Americans, like those in Wisconsin, can’t afford to foot an extravagant bill for others any longer.

We must keep in mind that Governor Walker’s proposals don’t end collective bargaining altogether, which is the charge being leveled by union members and media outlets throughout the country. This is just a smoke screen thrown up by union bosses and the people obligated to those bosses (like Wisconsin Democrats and President Obama), as part of a greater effort to make it seem like Governor Walker is after unions per se. But in truth, the governor’s actions are aimed at saving the state of Wisconsin from the bankruptcy it faces if someone doesn’t step up and pull these unionized masses off the taxpayer’s teet.

Whether intentional or not, a tangled web was woven by Governor Walker’s predecessors, and along the way public employees only grew more accustomed to having their “pensions, healthcare, and unfunded liabilities” paid by rank and file residents of Wisconsin (who have no affiliation with unions apart from paying the expenses union members incur).

Governor Walker campaigned on reining things in financially for Wisconsin, and he’s doing just that. Along the way, he’s hit on a nerve that proves the validity of the assertion that big government handouts promote big dependence."
