"Our government should not be giving out a handout but neither should we be kicking a person when he is down. Our goal should be to give a hand-up."

Republican Senator Charlie Shields agreed with Nixon, saying he wants to see reform to address and solve problems as they arise, instead of waiting until urgent care is needed.
