Also, some conservatives become hypocritical when they have to be responsible, personally.
I have a friend who opposes welfare, social spending, government subsidies, supposedly.
When his dad got sick he went to great lengths to hide his asssets, so they could get MediCare or what have you to cover his permanent placement in a nursing home. He complained about how you had to get the house and the car and the money market funds all switched to other people’s names for a certain length of time before you could “collect.”
So our tax dollars go for the permanent care of a man in a nursing home who could have paid for several months if not years of that care by himself.
Basically, it’s just hypocrisy. There is a lack of principle there in my opinion.
I had a boss who was the same way.
The disgusting part is that he had FOUR brothers who could have shared the load.
