Jesus never once said it is the government's job to take care of the poor. He never once said you let the wrong-doer keep doing wrongly. If you really knew your Bible, you would realize it is for YOU to help the poor. Also, it is for the able-bodied poor to help themselves. My grandma used to say--God helps those who help themselves. Now it seems we are supposed to do more than God would.
Congress returned to "work" this week (now there's a laugh) to complete its lame-duck session before taking another holiday. Spending other people's money is a taxing experience.

Their task is to avoid the "fiscal cliff," a geological construct of their own making. It doesn't take a genius to predict both parties will try to do two things: (1) reach an agreement that will allow each side to take some credit and (2) require those who work for a living to pay government more while they come up with phony, or inconsequential spending "cuts."

Whatever they do, payroll taxes...
