    The govt doesn't have to buy oil for the strategic reserve, and that was only one example of the welfare queen Koch brothers govt handouts. I guess you just can't refute the other examples

    The govt doesn't need to solve the problem.

    It may be a useful thing to do, but it is not a necessary thing to do

    Therefore, if you wish to argue that polls should dictate policy, then you also are in favor of raising taxes and against cutting any of the major expenditure line-items.
