The party of Lincoln who deeply believed that "government should do for people what they cannot do for themselves or do so well," has betrayed the words of their founder by vigorously opposing programs vital to our nation's future including Social Security, unemployment compensation, and Medicare.

This author has mistskenly conflagrated "helping the poor" and the various other charitable goals Jesus preached and government. He assumes that because conservatives oppose inefficient government programs to fulfill these charitable goals that they therefore are opposed to fulfilling said goals. Furthermore, the author neglects the social and spiritual benefits of individuals caring for others rather than "paying" someone else to care for the poor through taxes and government programs.Was this review helpful?
