The U.S. Congress is not a Charity

Today's bad idea:  Our junior senator, Kirsten Gillibrand is trying to breathe new life into a bill to provide charity to First Responders of the 9-11 Terrorist Attack. Now charity is good, and it ought to be part of our reflex and fiber as individuals.  But our constitution does not provide for distribution of of our tax money in this way. 

We have a long history of these kind of arguments.  Take some time to review the classic case involving Davy Crocket in the House of Representatives.
