One of the tricks that our government has successfully played on us is the illusion of numbers. If on Tax Day, the government said you had to send them a check for $40,000, they know you would demand to know where that money was going to be used, but since they take $100 here and there, we don’t feel the big pain and just let it go.
Our government asks us for $26 billion every month. Common sense tells us that this is unsustainable. The bubble will bust sometime, just when? On your grandchildren?
Stop this trick now. Make it pay as you go!
