I only focus on taxes because that is what liberals want to focus on. I have given you what I believe the role of the govt. is and the line items that the Federal Govt. is responsible. Liberals are the ones that call tax revenue an expense to the govt.=independent_thinker2002;1059113909]Spending is a problem.
