Exactly. People don't seem to realize that government subsidies always drive the price up.

Housing -> Subsidize -> Boom -> Bust

Free stuff for some people = double / triple the price for others.

My opinion, but those benefits are just subsidies for low wages. Without those benefits, there would be a demand for higher wages.

As long as you are paying people to fail, you will only grow the dependent class.

This reminds me of some cliaming that Obama just wants the rates that were i effect when Clinton was president. No a example is that Clinton dropped the capital agins rates from 28% to 20%. he alos made other chnages i the tax code.It alos was a bargined chnage with a republican house.But he alos raised middle income taxes as well and again gave dedcutions to offset for some.But then when you had the same people sayig that the BUSH taxcuts were only for the rish but now say we can't let them expire for thsoe below we see who was lying clearly.Both Regan and Clinton did what they did to encouarge investment and it createda boom i small business that now employs the most workers.I think perhaps peopel workig will have to see what doing the opposite will do.
