    If we give them a lower tax rate don't we have a right to ask how they are spending the money?


    If we have a right to ask how the schools are spending our money, then if we pay higher taxes so dividends and capital gains can pay less, don’t we have the right to ask how the money is being spent?

    I mean if it is to create jobs, don’t we have a right to ask, “How many jobs did that car elevator create?”.

    Is there a better way to create jobs?

    When you look at government involvement public schools and the US Post Office are funded by taxpayer dollars, as was Dodge and GM through the big automotive bail-out, so in each of those cases "the people" have the right to know how those dollars are being spent. Those businesses in the private sector, who pay federal and state taxes, and are not financed through the government through a "direct fiscal-lifeline" don't need to be told or informed HOW they are to manage their profits. This is why they are part of the private sector, outside of the realm and reach of Federal Government dictatorship. Why are those who have never run a business, always so quick and judgemental about how private organizations ought to run theirs? If you have concerns with how a corporation is run, why not try creating one, then inform us how well you are able to manage to keep it financially above water and create jobs?

    No one should have the right to tell someone how to spend thier own money, unless of course it comes from the government.

    No, you don't, nimrod. It's not the government's money. It's their money. I realize that's a concept libturds like you can't get through your thick skulls, but I'm happy to explain it as many times as needed.

    Progressives need to stop being such fucking pussies and just say "Government prints the money so they should be able to tell you how much of it you should keep and spend and what you should be buying."
