From the President of FEE:
The turpitude of the subsidy-seekers and handout con artists in Washington should rattle Americans of conscience to their very core. At the most basic level, it’s simply and inexcusably wrong to rip off a dollar from the innocent or the responsible and pass it on to the guilty or the irresponsible. Does it somehow become right if we do it a trillion times? Quite the contrary. It simply becomes a trillion times more wrong if not worse because the sheer magnitude means we can’t dismiss it with the palliative that "it’s only pocket change."
