    He would have been booed. As would Condi Rice, Walter Williams, Clarence Thomas or Herman Cain. The event was essentially a Democratic National Committee rally for those supporting free chit. The people carrying signs lobbying for jobs were about as welcome as Tim Scott would have been.

    So if I get a tax cut, you believe that is the same as getting free chit?

    Depends. Was it just you getting a tax cut because of your political affiliation, or did everyone get said tax cut? If everyone got a tax cut, then the government gave you nothing. You kept more of what was already yours.

    But something tells me you already understood the difference between keeping more of your own earnings and being given a government handout from the fruit of others' earnings.

    Edit: Forgive the wording. Since the post you were responding to was deleted, I misunderstood the nature of your question.

    No problem. The person I was responding to suggested that the GOP was all for giving away free stuff and used tax cuts as an example. I was disagreeing with that suggestion.
