A Thought on the Compassion of the Left

"It is a myth that the left is more "compassionate" than the right and it is wrong for those who believe in the free enterprise system and who oppose more government spending on income transfer programs to surrender the moral high ground. Liberal solutions all too often disserve the people they are allegedly designed to help. Even if the liberals who set up these programs had their hearts in the right place, it doesn't make up for the harm they have done to the goal of achieving financial independence for the poor. Good intentions are not enough. We need positive results. And throwing money at a problem is not sufficient and in many cases it is counterproductive."

~ Stephen Moore, page 10, "Who's the Fairest of Them All?"
