Well Said

Lawrence W. Reed on last night's Dem panderfest:
Government has nothing to hand out except what it first rips off. Whatever it sticks its nose into never gets cheaper or better, and it already claims more than a third of all that we as a people produce. The growth of federal spending during the Bush years is a fiscal scandal but to those who gushed promises last night, Washington is just one big unfunded mandate.

Now we all know how the welfare state got its name. The politicians get well while everybody else pays the fare.
