It is not your money anymore.
When you give someone twenty dollars in a card, it’s not your twenty dollars any more.
When you pay the dentist for a root canal, it’s not your money anymore.
And when you pay your taxes in order for the govt to provide services to the citizenry, it’s not your money any more but the public’s money. And the poor are part of that public and they using their rights as citizens to buy Doritos.
And please understand, I would love it if every child all over world ate nothing but good healthy food and never got sick. I look in grocery carts all the time and think, oh my god! Are these people trying to get their kids on one of those god awful shows on TLC about the obese kids?
But I know that I don’t have the right to demand these people feed their children the way I want. and that’s regardless of whether they pay for that cart of food with EBT, Visa, MasterCard, or American express.
