Can Obama supporters answer this question for me? Who should best determine how taxpayers should spend their money? the government or individuals?

If individuals ultimately create the wealth, who should be responsible for spending it?

  • well if you left it up to individuals, you would have no public schools, no roads, no hospitals, and things like that. yes there are some nice people that would try to help but ultimately the government would not be able to pay for any of those things due to the stingy people that think they shouldn't have to help anyone or share their money.

  • The government gets to choose how our tax money is spent. I get to choose how my money is spent. Do you really need a lesson in economics?

  • So what you are saying is that we would all choose to be uneducated, and not competitive with the rest of the world in areas of development, and health care, and infrastructure?

  • nope, but the people with the money would choose that for you. If you can't pay for the schools to be build on your own, you'd be screwed.

    Where does the money originate from that the government is spending?

  • uh, the government determines how all of the tax money is spent and it has been doing so for a long time.
    but as a voter you have the right to put in place individuals who you think would do the best job at managing the money.
