Why is it that when politicians come to us for money, it is always for THE CHILDREN, POLICE, FIRE or the ROADS.
Why do they never ask for more money for their pay raises, new fancy buildings for them, art projects, welfare and the like?
The answer is simple, they always have enough money for their projects. The things the people actually want the government to do, those they know the people will allow the government to raise their taxes for.
People who vote for additional taxes and for government indebtedness deserve what they get. I do not.
