Remember my Young Padawans. It's not compassion if it doesn't cost you something. Don't listen to a politician who is saying he is spending money on 'helping the middle class' or 'helping those less fortunate' yet using borrowed funds.
It is only true compassion if he is paying for it out of current funds. And even then it's not his money anyway.
But either way, putting money toward any program using borrowed funds is not compassion. It is saddling the next generation with a burden which the politician used to advanced his own position of power. (See Reid, Harry.)
