Wait... Just think about it.... I'm starting to like that idea.... Maybe he is saying that people might actually take an interest in their lives if death was the other option...kind of like not too long ago when if you choose to not work or care for yourself you kind of starved.

I heard on the radio once that over half the US people are 2 to 3 pay checks away from being homeless.

So the Huffington Post takes a quote, from a Republican, out of context and hypes it up. What else is new? When you go and look at the old folk stories like "Little Red Riding Hood" and "The Three Pigs", there was a reason that the bad guy was a wolf.
In Russia, the government employed professional wolf hunters until the 1970s.
It may have been a poor choice of words to make a point, but, these wolves are getting to be like alligators were a few years ago. They've been protected for so long that they have made a come back, now they are getting to be danger to people and livestock and nothing can be done because of their protected status.
I remember a man in Florida going to jail because he killed an alligator that had grabbed his four year old son by the leg and was dragging him toward a pond. "We understand your need to save your kid, but, that gator is protected."

Wow, leave it to the GOP to be devoid of compassion.
Aren't they supposed to be the religious ones?
'I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!' -Jesus
Sorry Jesus, the religious right decided to let you get eaten by wolves. They wanted to save money.
