Nobody says what government spending to cut

April 15, 2010

It is tax time, and the political season is starting, and the same old refrain is heard: Cut my taxes. But no one ever says, "cut my program." No, they all want to cut their taxes but my program. Everybody thinks their program is the important one, and my programs are "waste" and pork barrel spending.

I might pay a little more attention if one of them would start yelling, "I think this is important but to save money we should cut it"!

Then I might actually listen to them.
