Quotes worth considering (again)

"Repeal that [welfare] law, and you will soon see a change in their manners. [I]ndustry will increase, and with it plenty among the lower people; their circumstances will mend, and more will be done for their happiness by inuring them to provide for themselves, than could be done by dividing all your estates among them." – Benjamin Franklin (1753)

"Alexander Hamilton started the U.S. Treasury with nothing – and that was the closest our country has ever been to being even." – Will Rogers

"We contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle."– Winston Churchill
