Thomas Sowell said, "The government doesn't have any wealth of its own, except what it takes from taxpayers, whether individuals or businesses." I contend businesses pay no, nada, zero tax. They pass on any tax levied upon the business to real live individuals, be they customers in paying higher prices, workers in lower wages, or investors in receiving lower returns on their investments. Other than that, the good Dr. Sowell is right on, government is a drain and a roadblock on society and business, not a force that does much good.
