Money boo boo's not the first to get upset at government "gifts" (1934)

Here's a radio speech 11/5/34 from Chairman Henry P. Fletcher, Republican National Committee:
“We face unusual obstacles. Our party organizations everywhere have been handicapped by lack of funds. The opposition, on the other hand, has used its easy access to the Federal Treasury as a political campaign argument.”
The Roosevet administration was unmoved: Harry L. Hopkins, Roosevelt Administration Relief Administrator 11/3/34
“With the smug complacency which apparently goes with the Chairmanship of the National Republican Committee, Mr. Fletcher has seen fit to accuse me of playing politics because I am feeding the hungry, clothing the naked and sheltering the destitute, regardless of their sex, age, creed, color, race or place of residence.
