Judge Judy: 'Government is there to serve us, not the other way around'

Popular television judge Judy Sheindlin – better known as “Judge Judy” – told Megyn Kelly Friday on "The Kelly File" that “government is there to serve us. Not the other way around."

Judge Judy didn’t stop there, also questioning whether the welfare state has allowed people to become too dependent on government.

“What we’ve done to a whole group of people is say, ‘not to worry, if you can’t take care of yourself, we’ll take care of you,’” she said.

At the end of her chat with Kelly, her self-proclaimed "number one fan," Judge Judy wondered if today’s children are too often told that they’re special.

“It gives young people a false sense of reality,” she said. “It creates mediocrity. It stops people from wanting to be better.”
