Tax, Tax, Tax

In the wake of tax day, Jon Stossel has some truly dispiriting figures.

In 1904, government cost $20 per citizen. Adjusted for inflation, that's $340 today. Instead, by 1999, government costed about $10,000 per person.

So much for the big-spending Democrats' cry that the Republicans don't "care" about the poor and public works -- at least if "caring" can be measured by spending. Judging from Stossel's piece, it doesn't sound like either party has been relucant to seek and use Americans' money.
