Reading Franklin's autobiography now.

He would hardly have considered himself a self-made man. He spends a lot of time crediting other people with giving him opportunities to excel in his endeavors, including lending him money and doing him favors.

Douglass had help escaping from slavery from other free blacks and white abolitionists who lent him money, provided free transportation, and harbored him.

Clay got his early start in law - for which he never went to school - through job arranged for him by a prominent Virginia lawyer who took a shine to him.

None of these examples are self-made men.

Looking for a graphic someone posted yesterday as a response in a thread about ACA.

It was set up like a flow chart. Had something about exemptions for low income people. Anyone have any idea what graphic I'm thinking of? I tried to recall its salient points to my boyfriend but got tangled up in details half-remembered.

Thanks in advance!
