We all expect help for most citizens.

We all expect help for most citizens. December 2, 2012

I’m getting annoyed at the swaths of people saying that those who cast their vote for a Democrat just want the government to take care of them.  Yes, we do.  That’s the government’s job.  And don’t act like you don’t want people taken care of; you just think we should give tax cuts to the wealthy so they can create jobs and such (i.e., so they can take care of you and the vast majority of the country that is not rich).

It’s all a matter of who we choose to take care of 99% of the population.  I am just slightly more comfortable giving much of that responsibility to the people whose sole job is to increase the quality of life for American citizens.  I’m more content to believe help will more readily come from the entity that gave us the minimum wage, rather than from a group comprised largely of people who would pay their workers less than minimum wage if they could.
