First of all, it's not the government's money. It's my/our money.<quoted text>
If you tax bill ( bill - a statement of the taxes you owe where you send money, i.e.Pay) was $100 and you get a 10% tax cut, then you get an additional $10 in your wallet.
If you pay that $100 tax bill & the government sends you $10, then you have a extra $10 in your wallet, Flackonomics say these $10's are different.
Maybe the problem is that you don't pay any taxes.
How about this.
That 10 dollars is 10 dollars the government didn't take from you.
You earned that 10 dollars. The government isn't "giving" you anything until you get more from the government than you gave to them.
No, it's not an "extra" 10 dollars because that 10 dollars always belonged to you to begin with.
It's an extra 10 dollars if you get an additional 10 dollars worth of food stamps or your welfare check is 10 dollars more.
Just how stupid are you?
