Mooch, as some call the ever-vacationing Michelle Obama—the first First Lady in my memory with a penchant for expensive hotels and fancy restaurants on the taxpayer’s tab, is merely following a national trend for living on other people’s money.
Ours, says a new book reviewed by the Instapundit, is a nation of moochers.
“In today’s America, government benefits flow to large numbers of people who are encouraged to vote for politicians who’ll keep them coming. The benefits are paid for by other people who, being less numerous, can’t muster enough votes to put this to a stop.”
And we’re not talking about the poor-on-welfare here, but the upper-middle like Michelle and, someday, there could be more moochers than makers.
