Who said it?

"A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have."

While this quote is often attributed to Thomas Jefferson, researchers at Monticello suspect it actually originated with President Gerald Ford. According to the folks at Monticello, its first recorded use was when Mr. Ford used it in an address before a joint session of Congress on August 12, 1974.
