However: If they were taxed 100% (at one time the rate was 98%) then they would damned sure bust balls until spending was reduced.

I'd like that idea.

So please, take the time to answer my thoughtful question.

What was that crack about Okies?

Was that thoughtful also?

I'll say this:

I think that politicians spend money in response to whatever pressure from special interests they receive.

That answer the question?

Yes it does. It makes your other statement invalid....

There wouldn't be a deficit if there were a number of streams of positive revenue. Giving Okies food stamps isn't that expensive.

I don't see it. I think you're making a false assumption about an implied premise. Which one, I don't know.

ETA: I figured it out. I made no implication that special interest pressure doesn't fan out in a relatively rational manner, which is what your claim of invalidity would require.

Nice try.

You are saying in one breath, there wouldn't be a deficit if there was a number of streams of positive revenue.

I said you are trusting the politicians to spend your money wisely.

Your rebuttal was that politicians spend your money depending upon the whims of the special interest groups.

So, no matter what the amount the positive money stream is, politicians will spend it depending on what the special interests want.

How does that reduce the deficit?

The bottom line is this. Politicians will always want more of your tax money regardless of how much they get. They can always come up with ways of wasting your money. Deficits result.

I think the highest rate was 94%.

However that would not produce the desired result. I don't think taxing anyone unfairly is the way to move the needle. We stop paying our politicians until they balance the budget. That's how we move the needle.

Do call me when that happens. I'll buy lunch.

The topic of this portion of the thread is whether or not a state pays more or less to the Fed than what they receive. My point is that a high deficit is evidence that it is at least unlikely that any state pays more than they receive.

I don't get what you're saying in relation to that.
