Oh, there's lots more than that to demonstrate the absurdity of conservative complaining about big government.
"A man came back from the Korean War and went to college on the GI Bill, bought his house with an FHA loan, saw his kids born in a VA hospital, started a hardware business with SBA loans and advice, got his electricity from TVA, and later his water from an EPA project. His parents retired to a farm on Social Security, a farm in which they got their electricity through REA, and their soil testing through USDA. When his father became very ill recently, the family was saved from financial disaster through Medicare, and a life was saved with drugs developed through NIH research. His kids participated in the school lunch program, were taught science and math by teachers retrained in an NSF program, and were able to go to college through the guaranteed student loans. He drove his car to work every day on the interstate, and moored his boat in a channel dredged by the Army Corps of Engineers. When floods hit his town a couple of years back, he took Amtrak to Washington, DC to apply for disaster relief, and, awaiting his meeting, he spent part of his day visiting the Smithsonian Museums and the Washington Monument.
"And then, after all that was said and done, he sat down one day and wrote his congressman an angry letter asking the federal government to get off his back, and he complained about paying taxes for all those programs going to ungrateful people who were getting a free ride." -- Sen. Fritz Hollings (D-SC) in 1983.
