So, to sum it up President Bush believed in Big Government. The Federal Government needs to check their feelings at the door and follow the Constitution. These emotional feelings of "we must do something" is one of many reasons we are in this mess. The only person that understands your situation is you. Thus, its up to the individual to make it happen. Compassion from government will nothing but rob Peter to pay Paul. There is nothing wrong with having programs to help people but it should be at the state level, which goes back to "follow the Constitution" and abide by the 10th Amend.
