dems ignore the fact that there are sound reasons for this beyond actual revenue
too many people are disconnected from the reality that government spending costs money.
too many people have been seduced into thinking that the rich are responsible for bearing all the spending burdens and paying most of the taxes
that is why so many voters continually vote for more spending-they figure they don't have to pay the taxes to fund that crap
The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
