Very altruistic, but States don't have moral obligations, people have moral obligations. I'm as compassionate as the next guy, but as a taxpayer, I want to see some kind of limitation on this largesse. Does this free ride at my and my fellow taxpayers' expense go on indefinitely, generation after generation? At what point do the recipients of this jackpot become morally responsible for themselves?
