a couple with TEN kids attends a tea party rally. They complained too many people expect a handout now and dont want their money given to other people.

and then.....

The couple, who rely on Medicaid for their health care, were also upset about the nation’s new health reforms.

When asked why her family used state-subsidized health care when she criticized people who take handouts, Valerie Shirk said she did not want to stop having children, and that her husband’s income was not enough to cover the family with private insurance.

“I know there’s a dichotomy because of what we get from the state,’’ she said. “But I just look at each of my children as a blessing.’’


So its bad when the govt takes their money and gives it to other people, but it's ok when they TAKE other peoples money because they want to have a lot of kids. Yeah, right.
