“Don’t leave money on the table,” Michelle Obama told students at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia this week, seeking to put as many people as possible on the receiving end of a government check. Nothing builds the Democrats’ voter base faster than the widespread ability to raid other taxpayers for support. How widespread?
“Almost everyone is eligible for some form of financial aid, and all you have to do to access that aid is fill out this one little form. It’s so simple.”
Simple, as in one-stop shopping, all the better to build that constituency for OPM (other people’s money).
That works, but only until you run out of Other People’s Money. Usually because Other People have decided to string you up from lampposts in self defense.
