One huge problem is that those with taxing authority can always give themselves (or their department) a raise in income, while the working taxpayer cannot get an equal increase. Thus tax and spenders are decreasing the living standard for the folks they supposedly represent by decreasing their available cash.

Yet another "Trust Fund" is broke. This time, discussion involves an alleged "Transportation Trust Fund".

As with Social Security, there is no "Transportation Trust Fund", only a stack of unmarketable IOUs from one branch of government to another.

If there is any trust in the system, there shouldn't be, and soon won't be. Obama will surely see to that.
