Unqualified Offerings

"[M]ath says that if the budget must be balanced and expenditures cannot be substantially decreased then taxes must go up. Let revenues (averaged over the business cycle) match expenditures. Say what you will about the evils of taxes, but why should my little nephews and nieces be taxed for my generation’s failure to stop the war machine? Let them be taxed for whatever wars they fail to stop. And let them be taxed double if they disappoint their uncle by actually supporting the wars." (07/14/11)
