Vacations for the poor

As if Europe doesn’t have enough financial problems fueled by massive nanny state-driven socialist bureaucracy, along comes this story (from the Ottawa Citizen). Apparently the EU considers traveling for vacation a “human right.” WTF???

The European Union has declared travelling (sic) a human right, and is launching a scheme to subsidize vacations with taxpayers’ dollars for those too poor to afford their own trips.

Antonio Tajani, the European Union commissioner for enterprise and industry, proposed a strategy that could cost European taxpayers hundreds of millions of euros a year, The Times of London reports.

“Travelling (sic) for tourism today is a right. The way we spend our holidays is a formidable indicator of our quality of life,” Mr. Tajani told a group of ministers at The European Tourism Stakeholders Conference in Madrid on April 15. Mr. Tajani was appointed to his post by Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.

All across Europe parasites like this family could be heard rejoicing. This is such a great idea that it will likely become the centerpiece of our dear comrade leader’s next policy platform.

UGH…
