It's a great scheme: the lazy get a lifestyle absent the annoyances of work; government bureaucrats get high paying secure jobs with great benefits which don't require creativity or hard work; liberal politicians get the power to impose their views on everyone (plastic grocery bags are evil) -- for everyone except the people who work hard and strive to pay their own bills.
If liberals really cared about the poor, they'd give their own money to private charities, which have far lower administration costs than the government does, to maximize the benefit the truly poor receive. Instead we see the liberals giving little of their own money, and using every tax dodge possible to minimize the taxes they pay. That's what one would expect if liberals were really using the whole "care about the poor" mantra to cover up their scheme to redistribute wealth and increase their own personal power.
