And there is the seething hatred and bigotry that has infected the
right wing.

As far as I know there are only two ways to get the perfect cadidate
on the ballot:
1) Run for office yourself
2) Die and go to heaven

The irony of "the root of all evil" has God's name placed on it....

It seems foolish to blame her for that, when it's actually a smart
decision on her part. Maximal financial gain for least effort, with e
unfortunate situation where working full time (if that is even
possible..) she still probably wouldn't earn enough to make up the
difference. To say nothing if she ever got sick.

I've always felt that if the government is going to be in the welfare
(or medical care businesss) then *everyone* should get the same
benefits, instead of the current situation which actually gives the
"disadvantaged" cheaper (and arguably better!) health care than I can
possibly afford on the private market.
