Well...when you start paying one bill for irresponsible people, where do you stop? http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/6277344.html Houston, TX, will now pay the credit card bills of Po folk. This is what you get when you decide that people shouldn't be held responsible for their decisions...and when you manufacture a Constitutional "Right" to everything you want. People of Houston, Texas: If you don't get rid of the idiots that came up with this plan, then you deserve whatever financial calamity hits your city. What a bunch of dummies. Full disclosure: Years ago, I was stupid and rang up several thousand dollars in debt. I paid it off myself...every penny. Lesson learned...without my stealing tax dollars. And I'll be blunt here: anyone who will allow public funds to be used to pay off their credit card debt is a freeloader and a parasite...and in my opinion, a thief.
