After my FBN show last week, where I let critics of my FREELOADERS show talk back, I got this e-mail:
Dear Mr. Stossel,
I am a veteran who is rated and compensated as 100% disabled.
Do you, and Libertarians in general view me as a "freeloader;" and should I not be compensated according to your views of this situation?
Like your show, and I am truly curious. While I register as a Democrat, I'm probably a Libertarian at heart.
No, Stephen, if you are 100% disabled, I do not consider you a freeloader, I consider you: compensated.
Of course, the VA is another clumsy government bureaucracy, and I have little faith they make good judgments when deciding who needs help, and who freeloads. Today's Washington Post calls the agency "obstructionist, antiquated and overwhelmed."
