Re: “The poor, the private option and minority tyranny

When we send money to poor people in other countries, we call them "aid dependent" because no avenue exists for them to better themselves--no jobs and no skills to get jobs if there were jobs and many who cannot be trained. Here, when we are asked to send money to poor people, we call them "entitled." I guess because legislators think everyone in America should just "get a job" and get off the government dole. Trouble is, many poor people are "aid dependent," and they might as well be in a third-world country. At least there, they might be able to get aid without feeling like an inferior deadbeat.
