The government is not a business. Where then does the government get money? If they spend one dollar they must get that dollar from you and/or me to pay for it.
The federal government is spending more per household than ever before. Since 1965, spending per household has grown by nearly 162 percent, from $11,431 in 1965 to $29,401 in 2010. From 2010 to 2021, it is projected to rise to $35,773, a 22 percent increase.
