Chowing down at the public trough uis something Democrats and Republicans both do, of course.


Republicans are probably more likely to propose to cut such handouts, while Democrats often want to build a bigger trough.

That's still a significant difference.


Personally, if the government is foolish enough to give me a handout and I don't have to lie, cheat or steal to get it --- I'll probably take it. That's the way the game is played.

Similarly, I haven't heard of many Democrats who forego tax cuts for which they are eligible as a matter of principle.
