“When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.”
Quotation attributed to Benjamin Franklin
Amend this quote to say "vote themselves entitlements" and the results are the same.
The cynic and pessimist in me says this bill will pass, if not in its entirety, then in part and grow from there. Just as every other government
program has, and become a behemoth bureaucracy. Impossible to dismantle, with us forever.
