Don't you hate it when good-for-nothing social parasites sponge off the welfare state? Stefanie Murray does. Though she has a different idea of who those people are than some of the other folks who usually make that kind of argument:

And as long as we’re discussing entities who take advantage of government largesse, let’s point our fingers in the right place: [the penniless Caroline] Payne is living in state-subsidized housing and getting health care through Medicaid while she is working as a cashier. That means that taxpayer money is going to subsidize the substandard wages of that bloody store, which otherwise would have to pay its employees enough to pay rent, have health care, and buy food. We are not subsidizing Ms. Payne, we are subsidizing Wal-Mart.
