Friedrich Hayek did this, too. This is typical of anti-welfare critics
“If Social Security did not exist—if the individual were free to use that 12% of his income as he chose—his ability to better his future would be incomparably greater.”
Maybe with that extra 12% of her income, Ayn Rand could have doubled the two packs of cigarettes she smoked every day and could have gotten lung cancer before writing that vom-fest Atlas Shrugged.
