Give contributors to society a break


A prescription drug bill is now before our national Congress. Are we in for further redistribution of wealth?

A redistribution of wealth is not the way to get and keep a viable civilization. Those who make a contribution eat. Those who do not work do not eat until they, or a loved one, step up to the workbench to make a contribution. Of course, allowances are made for the helpless in any society (the very young, the very old, the very sick, the very mean - who are in prison).
