Was or was not your bank account larger? Answer Yes<quoted text> No it did not. This is where your brainwashing kicks in. What it means is the government is not taking $30K more of your money. It does not belong to the government in the first place so the government cannot give it to you. To imply that the government does in fact own everything is a very dangerous road to travel.
You see the word 'give' is where you go wrong.
Why was it larger - tax cuts
