One may wish to see the federal bureaucracy in Washington, DC as a giant, blood-sucking tick. Adhered to the east coast, the skin of our nation, like a Sci-Fi alien, it grows and becomes more deeply entrenched, sucking ever more money and power from the rest of the country, fattening itself at the expense of its host.
The notion, so bandied about by bureaucrats, that tax cuts must be paid for is an odd one. Where does that come from, if not the static minds of the DC establishment? This will surely be a revelation to such minds, but when American workers keep more of what they earn they are actually saving money.
Would it not be something if, instead of the blood-suckers telling us how much of our money we get to keep, we were to tell them how much of our money they get to spend?
If that seems novel or indeed refreshing, then we begin to sense how off-kilter things have gotten between the citizens of America and a government established and designed to serve its citizenry — not the other way around.
If Congress passes the tax cuts currently proposed by President Trump, or some variation of same, it will be a step in the right direction. One step, mind you, but one much needed.Follow @PolitiQuick
