Not for Nothin’

My dad used to say, ‘Be glad you don’t get all the government you pay for.’ Which makes sense but if we’re not getting it, why pay for it?

  1. What a funny question in today’s political atmosphere! Aren’t you aware that we’re supposed to share the wealth and be fair? What government is or is not doing, whether you agree with it or not, we’re supposed to shut up and pay up or we’re highly suspect. Someone may assume that if you are asking questions about taxes or government spending you might be a CONSERVATIVE – and none of us want that do we? (Tongue firmly in cheek and tone is heavily sarcastic)

  2. As much as I have written about government “waste” this idea may surprise you – but I think in the long run we would actually come out far ahead. We triple the salaries of the Members of Congress and the Senate. Then, every day they meet or enact legislation, we dock them one percent of their salary. They’d probably spend most of their time back in their districts. Can’t you just see Nancy Pelosi or John Boehner behind the counter of the local malt shop working as a soda jerk?
