    “…[T]he government of the United States is a definite government, confined to specified objects. It is not like the state governments, whose powers are more general. Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.”
    -James Madison

    “When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.”
    -Benjamin Franklin

    Who said that our founding fathers were no longer relevant???
