If you want to help the poor and needy then you have something you find important and should see it happen. It is not my duty to see that your desires come to bear fruit and it is not in my interest to spend my money on whatever desire you dream up. The government has duties and one of those is to act in the peoples defense. They have no duty to make sure you have food on your table of to make sure you don't die or whatever illness you might have.
