Yeah, sure, partisan and biased but:
Americans paid federal incomes taxes of $945 billion.
Sounds like enough to run a government on if I am to be honest really.
You know, a trillion dollars does actually manage to buy an awful lot of what citizens would actually like from a government. Perhaps not as much as the governors would like to be paid for providing that government but that\’s rather a different thing.
A trillion bucks.
Sounds like a reasonable top end limitiation on the size of government to me. You know, if they can\’t do it for one thousand thousand big ones then can they do it at all?
And, erm, please note. SS, FICA, Medicare, Medicaid, these are nothing to do with this. For they are not funded by federal income tax, they are funded by their own hypothecated taxes.
We really are talking about a trillion bucks for the fuckers in Wash DC. And, err, fuck \’em.
