WILLIAMS: Make non-taxpaying voters pay for vote-buying programs
Question of the Day
Under the current tax system, a liberal Congress and president can avoid the tough cost-benefit analysis and voter scrutiny by shifting the costs of these programs to the rich. Paraphrasing former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, the problem with soaking the rich to pay for social programs is that pretty soon you run out of other peoples money. The rich may not mind paying a share of these programs if the benefits outweigh the costs, but it is neither fair nor reasonable to expect them to pay the entire cost so the politicians can buy the votes of non-taxpaying voters.
