"Personal responsibility" sounds good in theory until or unless there are factors that make it counterproductive or impossible. How is one supposed to deal with personal responsibility when a hospital gives you a $55,000 bill for a broken leg, which can be impossible to pay? Or the phenomenon of "it's expensive to be poor?" Many things in U.S. society are structured in such a way that "the good get it better, the bad get it worse." Or if you are an ex-felon trying to reintegrate into society but everyone ostracizes you and nobody will hire you?
