Pretend America is a car. The inside of the car represents all the government programs and all the people that government manages and supports. We’re having a debate right now that goes something like this: The car isn’t going fast enough. So what republicans tell us is that we have to reduce the cargo and passenger capacity of the car so that it’s not carrying as much (cut programs) and can go faster . Democrats are saying that we need to put more fuel in the car (raise taxes) so that the engine can burn more gas.
What they’re not talking about is the miles per gallon of the engine, and if America was a car, it’d be getting about 10,000 gallons to the mile. And this is the kind of thing we need to be talking about when it comes to government spending. How is a debate about government spending honest if we’re talking about what government spends its money on, but not how?
That, the court wrote, “is like saying a ride on horseback is materially indistinguishable from a flight to the moon.”
