Like yin and yang.  As the UK tries to pull away from the folly of unbridled socialism, we foolishly rush in.

Great Britain, obviously, didn't consult with Lord Obama before passing this.  Obama knows that people sitting on their behinds, doing nothing, not looking for jobs, collecting welfare, and food stamps is a good way to "stimulate" the economy. :Obounce:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Even Clinton realized some sort of welfare reform was a winning proposition.
