IBD has a great column about this topic:
Some would say that this dependency is directly related to the bad recession. There is some truth to that.
However, some of us believe that this strategy of dependency is intended to create voters, or people who vote for the Dems to guarantee their benefits.
This dependency has created all of this structural spending that continues to grow year after after. It did not start with Pres BO but he has clearly taken it to unsustainable levels.
Last, but not least, dependency is bad for the soul because it destroys human beings. It's time to tell people that the check will stop and they are now responsible for taking care of themselves and their children.
