More Taxes?

“Taxes are not for the benefit of the taxed.” – Lazarus Long, in “Time Enough for Love” by Robert A. Heinlein.

It stands to reason; if they were for our benefit, they’d let us keep them and spend them as we see fit.

Of course, then Obama’s family couldn’t take million-dollar vacations in foreign countries, and Obama couldn’t use the White House for campaigning, and the government couldn’t give my money to the unions, or those who won’t work, et cetera ad nauseam.
