Dorette, it works the same way here. The more the government intervenes to “help” those who have failed, by taxing those who haven’t … yet, the more go over the edge into poverty. Further, the better connected people find ways to reap the lion’s share of the subsidies through higher salaries and prices, “necessitating” more of the same.

South Africa is further down that road than the USA, but it’s the same road, and our government is straining to catch up.
