It would be great to see his challenge accepted today:
"I have often challenged people to find a single governmental program in which the people who pay taxes have higher incomes than those who get the benefits.
I know only one. And that's direct relief public assistance. The aid to families of dependent children. It's not a good program its a terrible program, it's a welfare mess. But so far as I can find out its the only program that demonstrably transfers income from higher income classes to lower income classes, and thats why its such an unpopular program."
