no tea party person would rely on the government to provide for them

Tea Party people don't complain about people that use the system to survive, and by the way, that is a pretty broad statement. Tea Party people complain about those that are leeches on the system. They complain about the Zero Liability Voters. They complain about those lazy, good for nothing people that believe that they are entitled to other people's money by virtue of their existence. I don't know any Conservative or any Tea Party member that is against a tax paying citizen that has fallen on hard times receiving some help, because chances are that help will be temporary, until that person gets back on their feet. The difference is that person has pride and doesn't want to be relying on the system. The leech has no pride and has no problem living off of the hard work of others. The one thing that I will say is that any real Conservative does have a problem with welfare being handled at the federal level, because it is unconstitutional (Art1, Sec 8) instead it should be handled by the individual states. I live in Virginia, so why should my tax dollars pay for the food stamps of someone that lives in Michigan, or any other state besides Virginia?
