5. It's pure Scroogism. "Why should I pay people who don't work?"

(What, like the idle rich? "No, no, no. Those people are job creators. For instance, they hire consultants to handle it when they need to layoff a thousand people."

Another Scroogism:"If they be like to die, then let them do it, and decrease the surplus population." I think Ebenezer Scrooge composed many of the policy positions of the modern Republican party.
