Today, Chuck Schumer demonstrated why I have a tougher time aligning with democrats than the other side.
In response to Trump’s tax plan, he described it as a “tax giveaway to wealthy.”
I prefer public servants that think of taxes as something that people pay to the government, not as something the government already owns.
In my opinion, public servants that think of taxes as the former are more likely to spend the people’s money prudently.
Public servants who think of taxes as something the government already owns will spend it less prudently and will never be satisfied the amount they have to spend. They will always want more.
Such folks are less like public servants and more like lords.
