Government Expense Priorities
Have you noticed that any time a government is strapped for cash, the first thing they do is start threatening to take away the things that are actually needed by the people? When it’s local government trying to past a tax increase, first on the chopping block is always cops, firemen, and libraries. When it’s the federal government trying to either increase taxes (or raise the debt limit), first on the block is Social Security. Has it occurred to them that also in the expense category are bureaucrat’s pensions and salaries? Of course it has – but they have are of a higher caste.
