Government and taxation

For some reason I can’t get this YouTube clip to load – but it explains everything you need to know in 53 seconds.

Later in the same episode Josh gives Donna money to buy something and she refuses to return the change.

    I have no trouble seeing it, Papa. Try again maybe?

    What would our tax/GDP ratio be if were ruled in a utilitarian manner? This infers scrapping the more inefficient taxes and running equity policy on the basis of funding the indigent but privatising infrastructure and enterprise.

    I’m guessing 15%, all up, for what might be considered a mildly socialist State.

    DONNA
    [enters with a box] Sandwiches.

    JOSH
    Thank you, Donna. Defending virtue is hungry work.

    DONNA
    I’ll be at my desk.

    JOSH
    Ah, Donna?

    DONNA
    Yes?

    JOSH
    How much were the sandwiches?

    DONNA
    $12.95.

    JOSH
    I gave you a twenty!

    DONNA
    Yes. As it turns out you actually gave me more money than I needed to buy what you asked for. However, knowing you as I do, I’m afraid I can’t trust you
    to spend the change wisely. I’ve decided to invest it for you.

    JOSH
    That was nice. That was a little parable.

    DONNA
    I want my money back. [leaves]

  6. Must have been set in the 50s as that is the last time there was a real budget surplus in the US where the debt went down.

    Gab – thanks for that. I remembered it from when I saw the show, but couldn’t find a clip.

    Sorry Sinc but it’s simply wrong.

    No self-respevting Dem administration would have a surplus.

    The Dems are ashamed of William Jefferson and not because of how he moistened his cigars.

    Labor treats surpluses like finding money in the back of the couch.
