A bill pending in the California Senate would give every child born after next January 1st $500 to start a personal savings account.
What on earth gives the state the right to hand my money -- anyone's money -- to someone else's child?
Whatever happened to working hard to benefit one's own family?
Of course, the government has been "transferring income" from one class of taxpayers to another for years, but this really takes the cake, handing out "free money" that really isn't free, but comes from the hard work of this state's taxpayers.
Why stop the giveaway at $500? Why not $5000?
The Democrat who introduced the bill calls it "the essence of equal opportunity."
No, sir, it's the essence of socialism.
