I wonder how much tax money is actually propping up these so called entrepeneurs?
It seems to me that quite a lot of corporations and individuals are directly or indirectly suckling at the government teat. It seems to me that quite a few of the people who identify as right wing also hold government jobs or service government contracts, for example:
Public school teachers
Regular general schedule employees
Intelligence and security contractors
Scientists doing government funded research
All forms of civil construction
That's far from exhaustive but I think it's pretty representative of what I'm getting at.
To me it seems that a lot of the economy is in fact propped up by the federal government.
Which is worse, cutting the governments funds by reducing taxes, the government can no longer afford to pay all these entrepeneurs without printing more money and making us all poorer. Or, recognizing that the government and government services play an important role in both our economy and our lives and paying for it appropriately.
In fact, I'm going to make this its own thread
