Actually, traitorball, if there are no assistance programs for those who lost their jobs -whether it be due to outsourcing/NAFTA, injury, illness, old age, etc, do you honestly believe that citizens are just going to "take up the banner" of millions of people suddenly dropped from their health care insurance, with no income to support their needs for medical care, prescriptions, braces, etc., and also for even the most basic of food and housing needs? If I'm not mistaken, the reason FDR began these programs, it was because many were falling through the cracks and being lost, even then.. so -back to institutionalizing all of them under one roof, and praying for the best? That went well. :)
