Groups with a common special interest will fight for their benefit/action from the government. The government will spread the costs across a much wider population through overt or hidden taxation schemes. Since it’s just a small cost to each (or no cost to the 46% of workers who pay no net tax at all), the people paying the bill don’t fight against it. Today, the people that are paying for it are in elementary school or unborn.
We are 17 trillion in debt. It’s the greatest inter-generational theft in the history of the world.
Is it time to limit the size and scope of government as it was intended when designed?
