This is what would happen if right wing Tea Party philosophy was carried to it's "logical" conclusion. This is why some things are considered a collective responsibility.
As ThinkProgress has noted, there are currently two competing visions of governance in the United States. One, the conservative vision, believes in the on-your-own society, and informs a policy agenda that primarily serves the well off and privileged sectors of the country. The other vision, the progressive one, believes in an American Dream that works for all people, regardless of their racial, religious, or economic background.
It's simply shocking. And it's what would happen routinely if Tea Party logic was allowed to prosper.
