Burke: Giving You Your Money Back is "Irresponsible"

by Jerry Bader

I stress in this headline that it's your money because that fact is really the heart of this matter. Whatever shortfalls that might exist down the road, the responsible way to handle them is to reduce government, not hold onto more of taxpayers money.

But like most liberals, Burke sees taxpayer money as government money first and any that goes back to taxpayers is a gift. There seems to be a sense by some on both sides of the political aisle that getting this money back isn't a priority for voters right now. I have no idea where that's coming from, but Burke seems to be banking on it.

We'll see how that works out for her.
