Res sounded rather peeved that someone who has little might get something from the government -- which he seems to think HE alone is funding.

I've never though that I alone fund the government. On the other hand, the government (state and fed) has managed to take around 50% of my earnings throughout my adult life. I think this gives me the right to comment on whether I think the government wisely spends what they have taken. My main issue, however, is the fact that what the government is doing by giving away so much money (it doesn't actually have, by the way) is counterproductive to the end result of helping the less fortunate.
