There is a relationship and it’s testament to just where the power lies under our crappy cash based Democracy – and it is not in the hands of the People but those few who can afford to make government do their bidding! The rich don’t see a need for a safety net and neither do they want to pay taxes to provide for it. Their US Government’s resources are to be spent making them richer!

But! They got rich today by feeding off a relatively well-funded and provided society in the past. If it were not but for a well-funded and well provided society in the past they, would not have been able to get rich! It’s the difference in the opportunities available in a third world vs a developed country/super power.
