Plus, every time there is a tax increase they spend more money. That's the problem. These politicians have it good in their lives but they're really all just bottom feeders that look well off.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
