It's the Spending, Stupid
Bill O'Reilly thinks that John Stossel doesn't get it because Stossel isn't angry enough
about high taxes. In this article, John Stossel
fires back, making the case that onerous as the taxes are, they are only part of the problem. It's not just the taxes that are killing us, it's the spending and the nature of the spending . . . and the bloody arrogance of the spenders in spending it. Stossel nails it when he remarks that tax revolts will only take us so far. Unless and until we are able and willing to control the spending--and the political fortunes of those who do the spending--then all the indignation in the world over high taxes is going to amount to little more than a plaintive whine.
