RE: Hatch: The Survivor/Tax Evader
Because, when it comes down to it, people these days vote less with their pocketbooks and more with their pet projects, be it Iraq, abortion, gay marriage (look at the numbers on how that swayed people - beyond silly), etc. Do you remember anyone really discussing cutting spending in the elections? I don't - and I can't imagine any politician taking on trimming the size of gov't without being chopped off at the knees. IMHO, this is the biggest part of Reagan's legacy - spend as much as you want, no one will really give a sh*t about the national debt.
Of course, they did cut some spending on a token basis this budget season. When they get serious and look at farm subsidies, this silly prescription drug boondoggle, and other serious wastes, I'll probably be dead.
