Because right now, for every dollar you pay to the government in taxes, you're getting back about 4-5 dollars worth of services. How is that possible? Because the government keeps on BORROWING more and more money from China and other countries! We have programs that we CAN'T AFFORD (military, medicaid, medicare, education, etc etc etc) we're spending so much more than we have. Every American has 50,000 dollars worth of government debt on their head, and that includes children and babies! And that number is going up! This is in addition to each person's individual debt. Oh man... what have we become! How did America let itself turn into this! :/ How does it feel to know that you are 50,000 dollars in debt thanks to the Government? WITH INTEREST, and that they're spending more every day. Do you see how this MIGHT turn into a problem (war) down the road????
