My column for the Arkansas News Bureau this week is yet another of my rants about the country’s fiscal irresponsibility. This week, it’s about the tax cuts enacted in Washington. Once again, Congress and the White House have managed to give Americans a huge gift without asking for anything in return. They even cut Social Security taxes at a time when everyone knows Social Security is on a path to insolvency.
But the bill will come due, and our kids will pay it. Couldn’t they have at least tried to enact some spending cuts along with the tax cuts?
Anyway, here is the column.
