  1. Given the fact that minimum wage, adjusted for inflation, would have to be $18.50 per hour, it’s no surprise that most people working minimum wage jobs qualify for aid of some sort.

  2. Too bad Lincoln never said it. Misquote from the 1940s. These are a pastor’s words.
    Verify before you try to idealized judgement. Lincoln actually SAID that he believed the purpose of government was to “do for people that which they cannot do for themselves.” He actually praised charity as a Christian virtue.
    Nice try.
