I can't seem to forget the words of a congresswoman during a TV interview a week or two ago. "You don't understand," she said. "It's not the taxpayers' money; it's a set-in-place government program." She kept interupting the interviewer's objection, repeating that mantra over and over again, like a schoolmarm trying to pound sense into the head of a mulish student.
It doesn't matter what they were talking about. Her words say it all. Once they get the people's money, it's strictly theirs. It seems to have fallen like manna from heaven into their hands.
