  •  The notion of protecting the most vulnerable (2+ / 0-)

    means that you don't get help unless you are knocked all the way down to living in your car or a cardboard box.  Any savings to cover car repairs, medical emergency or heat for the winter makes you too affluent for help.  You have to have been underwater and basically homeless for awhile.
