I remember my parents (in the 1950s) telling me: “Being broke is temporary, being poor is a state of mind.” Dr. Ben has correctly, and with great courage, stated the truth. Government programs that dis-incentivize people from working to become self-reliant are largely responsible for the culture of dependency that can be measured by the enormous growth of EBT and “disabillty” rolls during the Obama regime.

“Within the first eleven months, we canceled or delayed over 1,500 planned regulatory actions, more than any previous president. Instead of eliminating two old regulations for every one new regulation, we have eliminated 22! We aimed for 2 for 1, and in 2017, we hit 22-1.”
“I promised we would pass a massive tax cut for the everyday, working American families who are the backbone and the heartbeat of our country…. We want to give you, the American people, a giant tax cut for Christmas. And when I say giant, I mean giant.”
