Dear All;

"Who would impose such a socialistic confiscatory rate?" US Senator Borah R-Idaho (1916) denying an income tax could exceed 9%.

David Gergen, advisor to multiple presidents of both parties, on the
size, scope, and growth of government:

- Spending by federal,
state, and local govt has grown from 24% of GDP in 1950 to 44% now.

- 60% of Americans receive more government benefits than they pay in

- 47% of US households pay no income

- The federal government has a quarter of a million employees to write and enforce regulations.
