Yet another false assumption. Fiscal conservatives actually like the poor better because they don't want to patronize them and leave them helpless. They want to help them get ahead on their own so they can take care of themselves and their families and not be dependent on others to do so. Shame so few seem to appreciate the message. They'd rather have the short-term gratification of being given a fish instead of lifelong satisfaction of being taught to fish.

Let’s cut right to the end of the story: Ordinary people have already tumbled off the precipice.

There will be no dramatic rescue at the height of the tension, with crashing, ominous music turning to a sunshine ditty, a government handout straining to reach you, to save you from tumbling over the lip of the cliff.

Instead the government is going to intentionally bump into you, making it look like an accident, head turned away, mumbling an apology, much like a pick-pocket does in a crowd, with the object to lift your wallet.      

So, yes; however much they...
