It’s easy to spend other people’s money

June 18th, 2007

That’s why most politicians love spending your money.

(It’s also why corporate boards pay CEO’s indefensibly high salaries, sildenafil there but that’s a post for another day.)

So my solution?

Have politicians spend their own money.

Every time a politician votes for a tax or fee increase, rx we automatically reduce their income by the same percentage.

(If they double a tax, troche we fine them half their total income for the year.)

On the other hand, every time they vote for a tax cut we’ll cut them a check.

My guess is that most politicians will be a lot tighter with a nickel when that nickel is coming out of their own pockets.
