Government is not the Source of Jobs

Liberals and feel-good moderates always worry about the impact a budget has on goverment workers. Fortunately, there are logical people in the society who realize that gov't employees are public servants and subject to the gov't living within the confines of the budget.

If I decide I want a pay raise, I have to take many steps to legally make that happen. I work harder and create more wealth. If gov't wants more money, they confiscate more from the public with the full force of law enforcement.

Many towns and counties are raising taxes to fund their plans instead of living within their budgets. If I can't live within my budget, I have to cut back or work harder. It's about time the gov't does the same thing.
