Actually, it seems that most of the screamers who rant about “moochers” and “takers” have, at some point in their lives, “used” government programs, themselves..G.I. Bill? Did their parents take out VA mortgages? FHA Loans? Unemployment? Subsidized housing? Public Education grants to school districts? Social Security? Medicare? Disaster relief? Farm subsidies? Travelled on roads and freeways subsidized with government or state funds? Used other infrastructure built with public funds? Employed persons educated with government funds?.Many Republicans quietly applied for and accepted TARP and emergency funds, and then railed against such profligate wastage of gubmint money. Republican politicians accept Federal money for disaster relief, and then apportion it with political favoritism and cronyism. This year,13 Republicans and 2 Democrats in the house benefited from Farm Subsidies – and then Republicans inserted verbiage in the Farm Bill so they wouldn’t have to report receiving those subsidies (didn’t make ’em look good, when they screamed about people sucking on the government teat)..There are more examples, but the point is that there is plenty of hypocrisy to go around, and the loudest screamers in the bunch (Republicans) – methinks they doth protesteth too much.
