The Purpose of Government . . .

. . . is for those who run it to plunder those who do not.

I was reminded of this once again this morning when I glanced at the front page of USA Today and read an article on property taxes that included this sentence:

“Cities, counties and school districts today collect about 20% more in property taxes than they did in 2006, when home values were one-third higher than now . . .”

The rest of the article was a bunch of whining and hand-wringing by the leftists at USA Today about how the rate of increase in property tax revenue might possibly be slowing down.

I wonder if there will be congressional hearings on “price gouging” by local governments to go along with the upcoming hearings on gasoline pricing?
