The Bent Logic and Language of Taxation

Brit Hume on Washington's

" . . . unspoken but undeniable premise, that all money earned by American citizens and businesses belongs to the government.   Whatever portion the public is allowed to keep amounts to "spending."   And if you happen to be in an upper-income tax bracket, your untaxed dollars are more than mere spending, they're an outright "gift" from the government.

Such thinking may seem morally and logically upside down to most Americans, but most Americans don't work and live in Washington."
