Quote:I grew up with a single mom who was a waitress. We were on food stamps. My mom then got Pell Grants, put herself through college to get a degree to get a better job.

So I grew up in a world where I saw the government helping individuals pull themselves up, and saw it work very successfully. - Adam McKay Quotes
