"The Federal Government should not be allowed......" Maybe we should leave it at that. Over the last 50 years, our FG and their cronies, under both parties, have looted the Public Treasury. Now, they tell us we, the working people, must fill it up again....SO THEY CAN LOOT THAT TOO!". Perhaps the States should cancel this failed experiment at BIGGEST government, go back to tariffs & duties on imports to "Provide for the Common Defense", take proper care of our Veterans, and pay back at interest, those who paid into SS. Nothing else. To the rest of DC...Go home. With FG taxes and regulations out of the way, the rapidly expanding Prosperity of the private sector will be able to retrain former DCers into something productive. .
