Either we spend socially small and tax small or we spend socially big but tax big as well. The challenge we have is that we want to spend big because we care about our fellow americans but we want to tax small because we hate being taxed for our social charity. We need to chose who we are and tax and spend accordingly.
Speak for yourself. where social(ist) programs are concerned, I want to taper it to spend nothing and tax nothing. And it’s because I care about my fellow Americans.
