Quote of the day–Milton Friedman

We have a system that increasingly taxes work and subsidizes nonwork.

  1. “…people running the “system” refuse to see it that way.”

    They see it as taxing (and restricting) their political rivals while subsidizing their voters, and they are for the most part correct. The only question that remains is; how are we going to stop them? What are the best tools and how are we going to employ them? For now, the laws are mostly on our side. As long as that remains true, legal prosecution is the key. We need the right prosecutors in the right districts. Where are they? This is a target rich environment in that regard, and if they don’t step up, it’s going to get a lot worse. Where are they? For what are they waiting?
