Sample text

Politicians seldom ask for restraint. They never seem to consider the possibility that a majority of citizens, if asked, might just care enough about the deficit to take some initiative and begin to prioritize. Responsible people do it all the time when it comes to their own money. People shouldn't forget that the only way government can be "provider" is with their own money. In the past figuring in the state and local government debt has made the total government debt picture look rosier. Now, since local governments must balance their budgets and are raising taxes to cover their deficits, and since local taxes are deducted from federal taxes, the federal government is getting less revenue.

C. bureaucrats would still decide how to spend it. A fourth choice would be for the federal government to give trustees authority to invest in state and local government bonds, especially those earmarked for capital investment like schools, police stations, libraries, drug treatment centers and shelters for the homeless. The huge amounts of cash could command large discounts. Investments would be closer to the people and they would sense more control over their retirement savings. Those savings would actually be saved—invested with real pay-offs realized over an extended period.

If you were to count future liabilities of the federal government as debt, you'd get another and even more astronomical figure. The government pays interest which of course means the taxpayers for the use of the social security trust fund. This raises the question of whether those dollars should be treated as income or out go by the government. If the trust funds were kept in a private bank, for instance, of course the interest paid by the government would be entered as a government liability. But since, in effect, the government is paying itself, the interest earned by the social security trust funds is treated as income under intra-government transfers.
