Much To the Chagrin of Libertarians Everywhere, Ayn Rand Was Actually a Welfare Queen

It turns out that Ayn Rand took government assistance while decrying others who did the same (she was not actually a [fictional] welfare queen, but it made a good headline).

Now, I'm not knocking the woman for taking Social Security and Medicare benefits that she was legally entitled to - I'm knocking her for her gross hypocrisy.

I'm reminded of all of those Tea Party people screaming at Congress to "keep your government hands off my Medicare." Americans are confused about everything else that's important; why should they bother to know who's providing their health care?
