its never enough no matter how much money government takes in its never enough.

every time they tax more in taxes the people have less money to spend on the economy.

Governments fail to understand that axiom from economics 101.

"what you tax you get less of what you subsidize you get more of"

now look around your city, state or the country and you see the results of over taxation over regulation of business ( that would all those jobs we no longer have here in America) and the excessive numbers of welfare queens illegal immigrants we have subsidized.

this economic model can't be sustained there isn't enough money on the planet to keep this bloated fiscal mess afloat.

well if she had a job she wouldn't need welfare and she would not have that many kids plus she and the kids might know who the fathers of those kids are.

Can you imagine being a little black kid and not know who your father is or why he doesn't care about you???

or be your lame welfare mom who doesn't know who fathered her little black Bas===="s
guess black women don't have a moral compass.

Problem with governments at every level is they never cut , close or sunset any program. they just pile program along with some stupid tax or fee to support that program on top of all other programs.

Government does not understand or acknowledge that axiom from economics which states.

"what you tax you get less of and what you subsidize you get more of"

Now look around you city state the country and you see the results of ignoring that axiom.

see all those empty factories, offices, commercial buildings ? wonder where all those jobs and MFG business moved to??

Someplace with a more business friendly environment with less union bully tactics.

Then do you notice or even care about all the illegal immigrants stealing goods and services from tax payers, or all those welfare moms who have no idea who the father of those kids they collect for are.

there is not enough money on the planet to support this bloated fiscal mess.
