Here is what I believe...Barney Frank is sincere in wanting to help the less fortunate, but his big spending policies simply don't work. And because he is unwilling to understand economics, his tenure in the House is harming the country.
Also Mr. Frank does not hold the high ground. It is much more humane to look out for all the folks, to demand fiscal responsibility so all Americans can prosper.
The left believes that the USA should be in business to help the down-trodden at the expense of everyone else. That's why doctrinaire liberalism is not helpful. The way you do help the unemployed and the ill-educated is to create widespread prosperity so they can hitch a ride on it and work their way up.
Giving people stuff is a recipe for failure. We've seen it over and over. But if you tell Barney Frank that, you're a bad person. America does not owe anyone a living. Barney never got that. But we wish him well anyway.
