Selfishness is a natural human state
I wonder what you base this on harry? And what conclusions you believe you can make from this statement?
if the government cuts funding to services and then gives taxpayers their money back through tax cuts, then yes- they have saved money
Language is interesting isn't it?
Of course, to save means to put away and keep for a 'rainy day'. What we are really talking about here is simply redistributing the money wouldn't you say harry? It's not actually being 'saved', it's just being put in a different place?
Well, it's Christine's story, but I don't think she 'believes' the money has been removed from a social program, from what she said it actually had been removed.
The government is not a business. Its role is to provide organsie and protect the people. If you like, it is delivering a service, and for that service, the people pay.
