Conservatives: Prove position

I believe that all conservatives and Republicans should return their unemployment insurance benefit checks to the U.S. Department of Labor because most of them want to cut and reduce spending on the federal government social programs that help the middle and lower classes. What they should do is what Ronald Reagan and conservatives have been telling needy Americans to do since 1980:

1. Practice a novel idea and concept and help yourself!

2. Get help from your family and friends.

3. Get help from charities.

4. Get help from your church.

5. Why didn’t you save your money for a rainy day?

You conservatives should practice what you preach to others! Get your hands off of my wallet and out of my pockets! Stop sucking on the taxpayer’s teat!

Why should I have to subsidize you?
