No welfare for TV watchers

I read the article "Analog TV to go the way of the dinosaur -- are you ready?" (Dec. 17, Page A-1) about government vouchers for digital TV signal converters with disgust. What has this country become when the government will give me money to convert my TV from analog to digital? Oh wait, we are a welfare state.

Whatever happened to working and saving for something you need or want? They will give me a voucher to get a better TV, but won't give me a voucher to send my child to a better school. So, Uncle Sam, can I get a voucher for the new BluRay system since my DVD player is 7 years old and really out of date?
