Grants, loans aren't free money to taxpayers

Columnist Rich James is at it again with his liberal nonsense, "It's a grant, not a loan." Do libs like James ever ask where this so-called free money comes from?

Do they even care that this money is taken from the working folks to pay for programs and projects that many times are full of waste and fraud? Or in many cases are just slush funds for political hires and patronage?

James supports government grants, the county income tax and Obama care because they make folks dependent on politicians, redistribute the working folks' money and give the ruling class politicians greater power to stay in office.

But I guess in the country James and the Democrats envision, everyone would live off a government grant.
