Governments Should Show Us the Spending

Email Print

Carla Howell and Michael Cloud — the two great Massachusetts anti-tax activists — recently had another great idea: make their state government reveal every last cent it spends, and whom the money goes to, in an easily accessed, easily understood online database. That way citizens can identify waste (and it’s all waste) and find new ways for their government to cut spending.

In today’s Columbus Dispatch, I recommend the same for Ohio.

You might want to let your state government — and the people who pay taxes to support it — know of this idea as well.
