Thank You, Big Government

For: garbage collection, schools, parks, pools, libraries, police, fire departments, retirement insurance, medical care for my poor neighbors, snow plowing, paved roads, streetlights, building inspections, ferries, trains, postal service, national defense, courts, trade regulations, etc.

Where the private sector provides those things, the cost of any one of them is about equal to my entire federal, state and local tax bill.

This post sponsored by the debate over Governor Spitzer's tax cap promise.
