Nothing is more disgusting than a politician offering
something for free. What he or she offers for free
was earned by a producer. Therefore he'll devise
more legislation to penalize the producers so
he can give you something for free.
OTOH, someone produced the panhandlers. If you produce something that
can't live without handouts, what is your level of responsibility for that?

You know what gets politicians elected?
You know what gets vote's?
Telling voters how much stuff they will get for their vote.
More/ less gun control.
Basically "giving" people what they want most and for many that's other people's money in the form of "free" stuff.
Aka, every politician ever.
