Subject: RE: BS: BUSHWACKED- BUDGET GIVE-AWAY
If I present a $ 20.00 bill for a $ 10.00 purchase, I expect to get back $ 10.00 in change. I don't tell the shop where I am buying, "OK, you have a surplus, but go ahead and keep it." Why does this make sense for everything under the sun with the exception of government revenue?
