Freedom in the private sector (market system) is what made our standard of living what it is today not Federal government spending. A little more privatizing and a little less centralizing would save money and cause this economy to soar to life increasing tax revenue. But, as Obama has clearly stated and repeated his policy is not about revenue it is about fairness, which is an anti-concept without meaning.
The fact you need this explained to you is a sign of the massive breakdown in our public education system.
