Do you remember when government aid was about feeding hungry children and helping the poverty-stricken elderly? Government aid isn't just about helping the poor anymore. We failed to heed Ronald Reagan's warning of 'creeping socialism.' Our government has extended handouts to the middle-class.

Isn't socialism great?
