Response to Yallow (Original post)

2. Typical response is:

"Jesus never said to use the government to take care of the poor" which is wrong on several levels:

1. The Hebrew Bible has multiple laws meant to take care of the poor, so ancient Jewish people did have a concept of government aid to the needy.

2. That doesn't seem to stop Republicans when they want to use the government to enforce their religion on others.
