Whatever the Federal or State or subsidiary units of Government do or fund, it has to be metered out equitably. So, if you were wondering where we get public schools, transit, housing and social programs and recreational facilities from, this is it. If Government is going to do something for one person, they have to more or less do it for everyone, even when acting indirectly through nonprofits, for-profit corporations, universities, community groups or such.
