Today I got into a debate with a guy who insists that Vocational Rehab is a conservative program because it helps people get jobs, and therefore it is in NO WAY "socialism" (in the way that many people view PA, Food Stamps, public schools, et al.) BUT voc rehab receives state funding to operate (it appears to be part of DSS) and pays for many things to help people. I realize the "system" has gone sadly off-track concerning some cases involved in PA where people do manage to exploit the system, but the point of the program is still inherently much the same (and funded from the same pot) as voc rehab. Get people out in the work force on their own two feet.
So -- can voc rehab possibly be considered a conservative-establishment, or is his argument based on being so firmly against the evils of "socialism" and Obama (cause that came up, too, sigh) that he can't accept services without this justification?
