I often have difficulty understanding how the government views money. For instance, why did they choose to spend fifty-three million dollars on an advertising campaign to tell everyone about their wonderful new money and that it's worth the same as the old money?
Don't they think we'd get it once the old money wasn't around any more? Even the people who broke out their Monopoly money would figure it out when the waitress wouldn't let them use it to pay their bill.
Currently in Charlotte, the county thinks that they need to raise the property tax rate. The alternative would be to cut services. What exactly is the problem with cutting services? It's apparent that the government can't handle money.
I don't know if the problem is that they think the supply is limitless or what. But it's been proven time and again (and again and again) that they just don't seem to know what to do with money. If real people handled their money like this, the credit bureaus would do their best to be sure they couldn't get any more of it. But not with the government.
This would be bad enough if it was their money. But it's not. It's ours.
