It’s like there is no connection between all the things people want government to provide and how they are paid for.
In 2021 Americans support Social Security (and many want higher benefits), and Medicare (and many want better coverage). Many Americans support free college, student loan forgiveness, free child care and even a guaranteed minimum income.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t all we receive now and all we want from government come from taxes or more debt which eventually means higher taxes?
What most people don’t realize or don’t want to accept is that taxes are currently too low to support what we now have from government let alone what many Americans want.
