They don't have to be sitting at home to be hooked on them. A lot of our government benefit junkies work for the majority of their living, but they're hooked nonetheless. Eliminate the home mortgage deduction or the student loan program, just to name a couple, and watch masses of people go into fits like heroin addicts who are cut off from their fix.
