The Rabbit Hole

Well, it's that time again.

I don't think anyone can deny that unemployment, although (unfortunately) a necessity, is a form of legitimized redistribution of wealth resulting from a lack of controlled spending/lack of savings by individuals. While this system exists, it draws funding from federal coffers. But how long can we keep supporting it? Our nation, though wealthy, does not have an infinite supply of taxpayer money. Jimmy McDermott states that his bill won't add to our deficit, but then again, every politician with an agenda makes that claim.

We have to step back and ask ourselves...How far down the rabbit hole are we willing to tumble before we realize that welfare, no matter what form, is not the answer?
