I have been trying to say that for a long time and a lot of people are just refusing to consider the possibility. Of course, in doing that, they are totally not looking at the recent history of this country.
I fear for religious institutions with the 'faith-based initiative' issue. Just think of a small clinic that begins to get government funds, goes in to debt to expand to give more care to the needy and then ---- the government decides you must give abortions or loose your funding. They have already tried to attack Catholic hospitals on this basis.
I realize a lot of middle-income people have seen so much giveaway in their lifetime, they think, finally, someone is going to give me something. They need to look at what has happened to those people who took all the government 'help'. They are not better off for it.
Vouchers and faith-based initiative is just another way for the federal government to get its foot in the door and destroy the independence of religion.
