While I was leaving a comment in another article I was struck by a few similarities between welfare bums and politician bums. Let me know if you can think of any more.
Both welfare bums and politician bums live off the public taxpayer, they receive their check courtesy of you and I, yet we have no say so how either one can spend it.
Both welfare bums and politician bums have free health care, again who pays for it? you and I do.
In many cases Politicians have a life long job. Many time their children follow them into politics.
In many cases welfare people are on the dole for life, even unto the second and third generation.
On further reflection, the folks on welfare could probably do a better job on capitol hill than the present Congress is doing, for sure the welfare folks could not mess things up any worse than it already is.
