Michael Duffy, TIME editor ‘We’re All Welfare Queens’ and ‘Socialists from the day we’re born’

TIME magazine executive editor Michael Duffy on the syndicated Chris Matthews Show Sunday made the statement that “We’re all socialists from the day we’re born. You know, you don’t have to be poor or unemployed to be on Welfare. We’re all at the trough. We’re all Welfare queens.”

Chris Matthews: The word we never say besides entitlements, the even worse word is socialism. But in effect, once you’re 65 in this country when it comes to health, you’re guaranteed to be taken care of.

Michael Duffy: We’re all socialists from the day we’re born. You know, you don’t have to be poor or unemployed to be on Welfare. We’re all at the trough. We’re all Welfare queens. Your house, and your healthcare, and your childcare. Well, maybe not your childcare. You know, my parking is subsidized. You know, you’re very subsidized. You know, and the whole country is built essentially on a series of assistance programs.

Matthews: Okay, explain that to the skeptic out there who says, “What’s this guy talking about?”

Duffy: Well, whether you, you don’t have to just get direct payments in the form of Social Security or Medicare. You get it in the form of tax benefits for your house or for childcare or or for commuting or for parking. You know, so it’s a totally subsidized nation. One nation subsidized.
