I’ve written about Charles Murray’s new book In Our Hands recently, most notably right below this post. In fact, I’m currently pouring through the pages. Interesting ideas whose time may be coming soon.
That’s why when I got an email blast from Mark Satin of the Radical Middle that discussed the book, I had to take a peek. Needless to say, I wasn’t disappointed.
However, this section caught my eye…
To pay for the grant, the Plan would eliminate all transfer payments (i.e., programs benefiting some citizens but not others), and Murray means ALL: Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, welfare programs, social service programs, agricultural programs, ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œcorporate welfare,” the works.
In my previous post I talked about how Murray’s plan didn’t eliminate Social Security. Well, I was wrong. Sorry readers.
So anyway, stop on by over there, say hi to Mark and tell him Donklephant sent you.
